The Great Backyard Bird Count starts THIS Friday and I am really looking forward to it. Last year was our first year participating and it really sparked our interest in birds. We have become more avid bird watchers. We’ve also been better at keeping the feeders stocked (My husband gets most of the credit for that.), so we’ve had the pleasure of seeing more birds.

Go to www.birdcount.org to read all the details of participation. And don’t worry, you don’t have to spend the whole weekend looking out the window. You can observe as long or short of a time as you like.

I’m hoping to see more of this guy.

and less of this one.

I can’t wait until spring when my favorite birds return.

  1. We looked outside the window today, though, and with the cold and the snow, it seems they were all roosting. Tomorrow is supposed to warm up, so maybe we will see some! 🙂

  2. oh, I forgot about the bird count thing…right now we have had pretty much the same-crows. Not cool. The pics were funny-the chipmunk dude is the kicker-we get massive squirrels in ours-not what we want either! LOL

    Happy counting.
