HOW TO PLAY

Make a copy of your card. Every time you refresh this page, it will generate a new card, so it is important for you to save the one you want!!! You can print it, take a screenshot, or just take a photo.

Observe the birds in your area. If you see or hear a bird listed on your card, record the bird and what you think it was doing.

o   Birds may appear more than once on your card. Record one sighting each time.

o   If the category contains many birds species (sparrow, for example), and you can identify the species, include that!

o   We STRONGLY encourage you to record your observations on the Cornell Labs of Ornithology citizen science project, eBird.

o   You may get an “other” space. Record any bird you see that you do not have a block for. You may repeat a bird on your card IF you have already filled that bird’s block!

o   Photographs are encouraged but not required. Please feel free to share them with us on Facebook in the original BINGO thread or on Instagram with the hashtag #blandybingo!
