Kathie, sounds like you had a nice count too. I love the regulars but feel especially lucky with the not-so-regulars!
Barbara, thanks so much. And that's a LOT of Tree Sparrows!! Lucky you! I wonder if GBBC will show that they were especially numerous this year.


Nancy,what a great count! I have yet to see a purple finch or a brown creeper but I got pretty much the same birds in my yard for the GBBC! I was thrilled to have a Tree Sparrow show up!


Wonderful bird count and fabulous pictures Nancy - I'm counting mourning doves and blue jays along with juncos and American Tree Sparrows in huge numbers - upwards of 30 - 50 per feeding about three times a day... here in southern Ontario... such fun to see them all.

  • 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.


  • 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.


  • 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.
