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.
