The RSPB is asking people to take part in its annual Big Garden Birdwatch survey this weekend.
The charity wants us to go outside for an hour and record the wildlife we see.
Last year in the West Country, House Sparrows and Blue Tits were the most common birds spotted.
Each year around 600,000 people take part. This is the survey's 36th year.

Two ponies from a critically endangered breed urgently need a new home, say a Somerset animal sanctuary
15-year-old Quiver and Quintus were found a home by Ferne Animal Sanctuary in Chard after their owner fell ill, but have now lost that to a housing development.

They are proving to be exceptionally difficult to find a new home for, so we are appealing to as many people as possible to help us ... They are real little characters and would love a home to call their own to see out the rest of their days.
