Yesterday began the annual weekend long bird count sponsored by the Cornell University Lab of Ornithology. It goes on until Monday, February 20th.
This will be the first year that I participate and I hope to continue to do so each year for as long as I am able. February 20th happens to be my birthday, can't think of a better thing to do to celebrate than to spend some time with my feathered friends! Its a good excuse to get out to a nature preserve too!
I'll keep you posted on the species I was able to see and hope to get some good photos too! Going out now to fill all the bird feeders so I can count the visitors when they stop by for their dinner.
