Are you counting birds?
One baby Allen's hummingbird. Doing fine, having survived last weekend's storm. Three adults flying around the yard.
One of three mourning doves.
Today is the first of four days to count birds for the Great Backyard Bird Count.
One Oregon junco beneath the feeder.
One not a bird (introduced fox squirrel).
No wrens in the nest box.
Just a half hour of counting on my lunch break. Plus - eight house finches, one lesser goldfinch, three white-crowned sparrows and an oak titmouse in the tree. Not an impressive list, but every list is important.
GO OUTSIDE. GO TO THE WINDOW. COUNT !!!
