NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

Grab your binoculars and bird book. The Great Backyard Bird Count began Friday, and it continues through Monday.

Stephen F. Austin State University Gardens and SFA students invite you to a family day tomorrow at Tucker Woods in Nacogdoches.

Participants will count birds with assistance from the Pineywoods Audubon Association and Texas Parks and Wildlife Department non-game ornithologist Cliff Shackelford.

"As well, there will be various games teaching younger kids about different things about bird ecology,” said Sam Rhodes, a volunteer. “You know, lessons about the wingspan, how fast birds can go, how much they can eat, why certain birds are different and just a variety of activities for families and kids of all ages."

"We will provide binoculars along with a bird guide for check out, so if you have your own, bring your own,” said Jessica Pruneda, a volunteer. “We always suggest you bring your own supplies, but if you do not have your supplies, we will have some to check out."

Great Backyard Bird Count is free from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, at the Pineywoods Native Plant Center, 2900 Raguet St. It happens rain or shine.
