The Great Backyard Bird Count
February 18 - 21 is the official weekend for this year's Great Backyard Bird Count! I look forward to this every year. Here is a bit from the website:
It is a wonderful feeling knowing that you are contributing in a small way towards a greater, grander project. Some years I do this with the help of children, some years it is just me. Last year, Toucie wove in and out of my bird-watching sessions...an interested observer if not a full-blown participant :)
This year, she's the one who puts out seed for the birds each day, so perhaps I'll have a counting partner...we'll see.
Who are we expecting to see? Well, here is a list of birds we've observed from our kitchen window as the winter season has passed:
I wonder who will show up to be counted?
