My 2019 Great Backyard Bird Count Results

Today seven of us did a Great Backyard Bird Count. We spend a good part of the day looking at birds in my yard in North Berkeley  and then walking around the neighborhood in the North Berkeley Flatlands along the Ohlone Greenway and several side streets.

We found twenty-four bird species. Surprisingly 21 of them were either in or seen or heard from my yard. All bird species seen from our house except Black Phoebe, Red-breasted Nuthatch and California Scrub Jay.

The highlight of the day was seeing a Cooper’s Hawk swoop across our backyard and a Red-tail Hawk flying above. Both are very infrequent visitors to our yard.

Another highlight of the day was our Great Backyard Birding brunch featuring a Chocolate Bobka French Toast Bake that was very much enjoyed by all.
