Great Backyard Bird Count
It's that time of year again. The Great Backyard Bird Count has begun and this year the hubby and I actually participated. We printed out the regional list, put the binoculars and the bird book near the windows and noted all birds seen yesterday. Had a flock of Coots come by so that was our biggest count. Currently we also have Bonaparte Gulls fishing in the lake so they are fun to watch. Regretfully I don't have a super spiffy camera with a great zoom lens so no photos to upload. Supposedly there is a bald eagle flying around but I have only seen a speck high in the sky that might be him. So grab your bird book and binoculars and go out and count the little birdies.
