I had a bit of a chance to contribute to the #gbbc from four different yards as I went about my weekend. I’ll just summarize my list here:
|species list||mallard wild turkey mourning dove belted kingfisher red-bellied woodpecker downy woodpecker blue jay black-capped chickadee tufted titmouse white-breasted nuthatch european starling song sparrow dark-eyed junco northern cardinal red-winged blackbird american goldfinch house sparrow||turkey vulture rock pigeon red-bellied woodpecker blue jay black-capped chickadee tufted titmouse white-breasted nuthatch european starling dark-eyed junco northern cardinal house sparrow||mallard cooper’s hawk mourning dove black-capped chickadee tufted titmouse white-breasted nuthatch dark-eyed junco northern cardinal american goldfinch house sparrow|
Total species: 21
I did spot Ring-billed Gulls around the Driscoll Bridge and along the rest-stops further south as well as Turkey Vultures, but I didn’t include those on Saturday. However, on Saturday, as part of a baby shower I did draw a picture of a wren using fabric markers:
The baby to be will be named Wren, so a wren drawing seemed fitting.
After seeing the birds from work featured on Fox and Friends, my folks decided to participate. Their contribute was to tell me the list verbally when I stopped by on Monday afternoon. My folks have gotten so much pleasure from their new bird feeder!
