This weekend, all you will need is some patience and maybe a pair of binoculars to help with scientific research.

The Great Backyard Bird Count begins Friday and runs through the 16th. Count the birds you see in your backyard, and make note of their species. The information will help scientists study the population and travel patterns of our area birds.

“We hope more people will get interested in the birds and maybe develop a backyard habitat to attract more birds; putting feeders out to support them through the winter,” said Steve Emslie a UNCW professor.

To report your findings go to birdsource.org/gbbc.
