  1. Such beautiful birds visiting your backyard, Kathie! I hope to participate in the GBBC three out of the four days. Happy birding to you!

  2. Nice variety of birds. Had an immature Cooper's Hawk fly in twice. Maybe I should look into the GBBC.

  3. A lovely trio here Kathie. The lighting is perfect.

  4. Julie, Oh I'm so glad to hear that!

    Gaelyn, the GBBC is how I got started at becoming a birder instead of a bird watcher! Go for it! It's easy!

    Denise, thank you! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I plan on it!! Have had a pair of red shouldered hawks in the vicinity of late. Hope they show up in time to be counted!

  6. Hi Kathie

    I envy you your Bluebird. You seem to be doing really well on your count.

    All the best.


Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
