Great Backyard Bird Count

We learned about The Great Backyard Bird Count this week, and are eagerly participating!  Today we counted birds at our feeders while we were eating breakfast, and saw 13 Pine Siskin at the feeder.  Then we went for a walk down the Centennial Tail, and saw 15 Pine Siskin on a neighbors feeders, 3 Crows, and 2 Mallard Ducks.  We heard geese, but didn't see them.  We will keep counting birds as we see them, the count goes on through Monday!
So far around North America, there have been 12,655 checklists submitted, 478 species of birds observed, and 1,188,897 individual birds counted!
