It's bird count day!

Today is the bird count at our feeders in our region. At first light, I was ready. I reviewed some photos from last year. The feeder was fairly easy to access, for all the critters!
The feeders are right beside the house, I doubt I'll see any rare birds. It's easy viewing, from my easy chair.

We'll see what else I see today!

'...but I'm just pruning it for you, aunty Jenn!'... I love that Wobbleg was looking directly at you - well the window and that you do in fact have those very rare birds, the flightless Prong-horned Four-leg No-bill!!!

Efforts here at the Hutch would be very little; Gull (Herring, 87 gazillions), Gull (Black-backed, a little less than 87 gaz), Gull (Black-capped, fewer), Corvids (raven, crow, magpie, hooded crow, jackdaw; rather a lot). Robin...wait, what?! ROBIN!!! YAM xx

They are so hungry, are you putting out deer nuts again this year? Bird count, we have it down here too, I am not sure what time of the year, and from past years, I think you fill in which birds you see in one area over an hour?? Keep warm, that snow looks mighty deep.

Our bird count is tomorrow and I'm not going. It rained yesterday and it's incredibly icy. I usually walk the same 10 km route.

Is that one of those rare deerbirds at your feeder? Those seeds must be "finger licking" good. - Margy

Jean, it's how many you see of a species at one time!
