My Great Backyard Bird Count

We had our annual Great Backyard Bird Count and Brunch. Besides the great baked goods we saw or heard 27 different different bird species. It was out most to date and was surprisingly high as the birds have been slower than usual this year in our yard. Several species showed up for the first time in months. Our favorite was the Townsend’s Warbler. Nineteen of the species were seen in or from our yard. The additional species were added when we walked around the neighborhood.
