This winter we have seen some birds in our yard that we've never seen before - well never in our own yard before. How do we know this? We keep lists!
We've had a Red-bellied Woodpecker and a Carolina Wren visit the feeders. The wren we've heard before but never seen.
This weekend is the Great American Backyard Bird Count. This is a fun way to actually do some science and collect data that will be used by scientists to learn about the habits of our local birds.
My friend, and fellow science lover, MamaJoules has a nice post about the GBYBC here.

We are going to participate - what about you? If you can't participate, you can post your observations below.
