This last weekend was The Great Backyard Bird Count. It’s a citizen science project that simply requires us to record the birds we saw over the weekend. I’ve taken part in the GBBC the last couple years & one thing’s for certain – the 2nd weekend in February at our house is going to be crummy weather & terrible for birding.
Mourning Dove & Golden-crowned Sparrow
Friday was not as stormy as the rest of the weekend & I’m glad I took advantage of it & went outside. Other than that I tried sneaking outside between rain clouds, but inevitably I would have to come back in due to rain.
Our most frequent visitors were a flock of robins…

Right: Red-breasted Nuthatch
I’ve never spotted these birds around our house. It was a fun find & made up for the terrible weather.
This weekend wasn’t a total waste, but I sure wish the weather would have cooperated. I am already looking forward to next year.
