Join in O’Fallon’s Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), which will be held on Saturday, February 9, in scenic Fort Zumwalt Park, 1000 Jessup Drive, O’Fallon, Missouri 63366. Anyone can participate, including beginning bird watchers, families and experts. Bring binoculars, if possible. There’s no cost for parking.

The cost of $2 includes a tour of the home, which is hosting an exhibit of photographs of Missouri birds taken by members of the O’Fallon Photo Club and photographer Ferman Carrillo.
