Great Backyard Bird Count Results

We had a below average list of birds for this year’s count.

Total of 59 birds of 12 species seen.  Notables were a Cooper’s and Red-tailed Hawk.

Our backyard hasn’t been producing the greatest amounts of birds of late. We have had thirty or more American Goldfinches at one time and 50-75 House Finches but these numbers were 4 and 12 respectively. No Black-capped Chickadee which is very odd but at least the Red-bellied Woodpecker showed up for peanuts. The Blue Jays were not around and the Red-breasted Nuthatch that made a brief appearance last Monday was no where to be found.

Last year we had a pair of White-throated Sparrows but alas, those too were missing.
