Bird Count Progress

As you can see in the list to the right, my Great Bird Count of February is off to a slow start.

I have limited my list to birds seen or heard from the windows or deck of the apartment, so I am at a disadvantage to the other participants. I have had plenty of mourning doves and house finches at the feeder, but not much else. Today I added a glaucous-winged gull and a robin flock to the list and I am hoping for some raptor and waterfowl flyovers.

It is a nice sunny day and birds are probably singing, but their songs are being drowned out by leafblowers and carpet-cleaning vans. Ah, the perks of apartment life. Oh well, at least I have a job and I'm not being foreclosed upon.

You are an ambitious birder to limit your count to the birds seen from your apartment, but you never know what might flyover. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you get that little farm someday! Do you eBird?
