Great Backyard Bird Count Weekend!

Posted 1 Comment

This weekend is the Great Backyard Bird Count. Take a few minutes to count some birds in your backyard. Log them in eBird. You’ll help the bird scientists understand and protect our feathered friends.

This afternoon I totaled 20 species in my backyard despite the heavy winds. On a good day, I can tally 35 species or more. It’s amazing how many birds you notice when you start to pay attention. So get out and enjoy – and share what you see!

  1. Very nice!

    Since I am too old to create a “bird-friendly” yard, I told Gini we need to move to a house that already has such a yard. Surprisingly, she is all for it! (I may have created a monster…..)
