2020 marks my 10th year logging and photographing birds during the Great Backyard Bird Count. 10 years! A decade! 10 times I’ve gone out in search of feathered friends on this same weekend in February. Maybe that officially marks me as a #birdnerd ❤
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
Another year, another Great Backyard Bird Count. Typically I do a combination of counting birds in public areas, as well as around our home. This year I only counted birds near our house. Everyday I pretty much saw the same species of birds. A number of them were the same birds that have been around awhile. But, the Golden-crowned Kinglet, Black-capped Chickadees, and Hairy Woodpecker
This weekend was the once a year Great Backyard Bird Count. This is my 6th year participating and 2 things are for sure. I’ll seek and find birds. It will also rain. This year the weather did cooperate a little more than usual, meaning it rained and was foggy but wasn’t crazy stormy. Sometimes I even saw the sun. Friday, I went to a park
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.
Last weekend was the Great Backyard Bird Count. The weather was much more cooperative this year than in years past. Friday was fabulous. I think it may have even gotten into the lower 50’s. Saturday was foggy all day. Sunday & Monday were chilly, a bit drizzly & had occasional fog. But, I’ll take it. If it’s not pouring down rain in February, I can’t
Once again another weekend of crummy weather for The Great Backyard Bird Count. I had plans to visit a Wetlands Preserve, but that didn’t work out. So, I only spotted birds around the house & I didn’t get too adventurous with finding them. I just didn’t feel much like hiking around in the cold, wet weather to search for birds. I wasn’t completely skunked, though.
