Great backyard bird count

When going to our local nature center yesterday we found out this weekend is the great backyard bird count and we are participating. It is much easier than I thought it would be. I have already submitted 3 lists of different birding periods. Funny thing is I saw more birds during our walk from the library to the van than when we were at the nature center. (Only one cardinal spotted at the nature center, and 3 house sparrows outside the library) If you have 15 minutes and you want to jot down what types of birds you spotted head over to this site and log them in. Help in this national project to see where the birds are.

we have a family of cardinals in our oak tree & a family of other very small brown birds. they eat all day long . . . I'm surprised they can "lift off" lol

we also have two doves & an opossum that was visiting on a regular basis (even after Dakota cornered it ! ! !)
