The Great Backyard Bird Count--2011

The Great Backyard Bird Count has begun!

We are having better luck than we did last year or the year before.

This year, Kiddo is eager to look up the birds we see. He is also eager to hear them, and thanks to the book Bird Songs: 250 North American Birds in Song. It has most of the common birds we see, making it easy to hear them while we continue our viewing.

Are you counting this year? How is it going?

We counted on Friday and Saturday. Today was too busy for counting. I'll probably try tomorrow. So far it's been great. Lot of birds in different varieties. And squirrels. Lots of squirrels. :o)

Peace and Laughter!
