Hey! Blogging  Backyard birdwatchers.. the Great 2010 Bird Count starts this Month help spread the word.
for more info go to....

I had fun participating in the backyard bird count. 

Here's my list for February 12th 2010.

Downy Woodpecker - 1)   Black-capped Chickadee - 2)    White-breasted Nuthatch - 2)  Fox Sparrow -   House Sparrow - 50...Those darn House sparrows are taking over my yard!

February 14th:  American Crow - 4 spotted them in Harper woods)   American Robin - 40 saw these in Roseville Michigan outside of  a Tim Horton's.     On the 15th.. No new sightings.

I really enjoyed the bird count because it made me extra alert and I had spotted my feathered friends who I had not seen since 2007/08. The white breasted  Nuthatch couple I call Ben and Brenda was high up in a tree scouting for the black oil seeds that they must have planted in the bark during those years...I was happy to see them again.

I also looked for the return of my feathered friend the Red breasted Nuthatch....I named  Bandit.
He was fearless at my feeder and showed up around the same year in 2007/08..as  Ben and Brenda..
perhaps Bandit  will show up at a later date.

  I look forward  to participating  again next year.


  1. I need to pay more attention and read the directions for the bird count next year. I didn't know you included birds you see other places besides your yard. It sounds like you had fun with it.

  2. I did have fun.. I had to read the directions more then once to understand how it should be done..I was confused at first.
