Backyard Bird Count 2/18/17

Today we did our annual Great Backyard Bird Count with friends. We observed our yard for a few hours than walked around the neighborhood in North Berkeley. We had at least 23 different birds. We were unable to ID the woodpecker as we only heard it and the gulls were all flying to high to ID.  The highlight was a Red-breasted Nuthatch, which spent most of the day in yard. (Normally they are only an occasional and relatively brief visitor. Here is our list
