We are in the middle of the 12th annual
Backyard Bird count.

One, two White Breasted Nut Hatches.

One, two, three, four female Northern Cardinals.

Three male Downy Woodpeckers and two females.

A pair of Titmice.
All sorts of Sparrows and Juncos and Grackles and Starlings!

I just love those open mouth shots. I can just imagine the noise they are making.

It seems they want to be counted!

Happy Valentines Day, Sherry! I have been catching up your San Antonio trip. I'm so excited about all of the birds you met! It must have been a great time for you, and very birdy! Love that Roadrunner.

Happy Counting!

Happy Valentine's Day Sherry!
Our bird count day was quite uneventful ... one woodpecker and four sparrow :-)Of course, it could have been that the suet baskets were freshly filled and Sammy & Stewart spent the majority of the day eating :-)

Great photos!
Being a first-time participant, I thought it was going to be more time-consuming, but it hasn't been. It's also been a lot of fun.
