Counting the Birds...

 Today is the day... actually it's the first of several days.

(Click the link above to get the details)


I'm making a big deal of it 
because this is my first year to actually do it.
I always have the best of intentions... but then it slips my mind
and I miss it.


CAMERA ... ready.
BIRD FEEDERS... filled.
SUN... up.

Bring it on little birdies... I'm ready to count! 


Check back here in a few days 
to see the images I capture
in my first ever bird count.

 

Why count Birds? 

"Scientists and bird enthusiasts can learn a lot by knowing where the birds are. Bird populations are dynamic; they are constantly in flux. No single scientist or team of scientists could hope to document and understand the complex distribution and movements of so many species in such a short time. Scientists use information from the Great Backyard Bird Coun to get the “big picture” about what is happening to bird populations."

  2. My first year to submit too. There are always too many birds to count, it is hard to know if they are being counted twice. Such little cuties you have there.

  3. What a great thing to do. Of course, doing this does not make one a bird brain, right? Happy counting!

  4. Counting birds is a great idea, Carolyn. I can't count them, they are so fast and seem to be the same!
    Have a nice day!
