Great Backyard Bird Count, Part 2

Because I worked all day yesterday and today, I decided to count the birds at the feeders outside the visitor center. There is a small window to watch the action, but it generally proves to be enough to get a fairly good look at what's going on out there.

The days started out pretty slowly. But it didn't take long for things to start moving. First one little Chickadee flitted in, then out. Then a Pine Siskin, shortly followed by a House Finch. Before too long, I had counted 35 Pine Siskins and smattering of other birds.

How is your bird counting going?

I had pretty much the regulars, but with loads of Siskins. I talked my mother into doing it, let's see if she gets into it.

Well it started out badly @ work even trying to bribe them with seed :)

But when I got home this afternoon it was crazy! Very cool... and I got quite a few pics too.

Sprinkles of birds and bird seed--terrific!
