This was my 8th year counting birds for the annual Great Backyard Bird Count. Some years I venture out to find birds at wetlands or local parks. This year, I only counted birds at home. We had a little snow, which I think kept some birds in hiding. Also, I didn’t get out as often as I sometimes do. So, although I spotted a number of birds, they were the typical ones that hang out closer to our house than off in the trees.
I may be wrong, but I feel like we used to have far more Junco’s in the winter than we have had the last couple years. I did see a couple, though, during the GBBC.

We don’t see these feathered friends very often. But I know there are a couple that visit us and I was fortunate to see one during the GBBC.
Ravens & American Crow
I saw both Ravens and Crows flying overhead a couple of the GBBC days.
