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.
- 1) - 2) White-breasted Nuthatch - 2) Fox Sparrow - - 50...Those darn House sparrows are taking over my yard!
February 14th: American Crow - 4 spotted them in Harper woods) - 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.
