ATTENTION

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.

ACCEPTANCE

  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.

RESPONSIBILITY

  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.

Eileen - Blue Jays were my #4 but have been VERY numerous this winter. They're very piggy!

Eileen

The Chickadees are great birds. My first bird was a bluejay looking for peanuts.

Lindsey - Yeah chickadees! Sounds like a good start to 2010 list.
Lana - good to hear you're reporting often to eBird. Happy New Year.
SciGuy - and what was YOUR first bird?
Con - Happy New Year to you and nice to hear from you again.

I love chickadees, too. Though I didn't keep track and haven't checked my photo files, my first bird of the year could have been a mountain chickadee or a dark eyed junco, both very common and loved as much as any less frequent sighting. Happy New Year.

One of my favorite birds. Definitely not a bad one to start off the new year.

Lana

Congrats! I saw a lot of birds that were new (to me,) on New Years Eve, myself. I keep a list of birds we see at home, but beyond that I'm just trying to report more regularly to eBird.

Hooray! My first bird of 2010 was a black-capped chickadee as well! Even if I didn't want them to be my first for 2010 it was "too bad, so sad" because they hang out right near the door. :)

My 2009 list came to 93 species.

It's only been 4 days into the year and I've already added a pileated woodpecker, red-bellied woodpecker, downy woodpecker, common mergansers, two red-tailed hawks, and a bald eagle to my list. I'm so happy!
