It’s That Time of Year–GBBC

It’s time for the Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC), that’s what! The dates this year are February 17-20. 

You can find more info here and here. And here’s a link to the post I wrote about it last year. 

Please consider participating. It’s good for the birds, and you might find a new hobby while you’re at it. Fifteen minutes is all the time required.

How can you resist? 🙂

    1. Not sure where you are in India, but Google found one that took place at Chilika in January, the Great Himalayan Bird Count (this group has a Facebook page) has one in November. Hopefully, you can find one near you. Thanks for visiting my blog. 🙂

          1. No we have not but CH read the links/instructions and we are good to go. Where we buy our wild bird supplies, they were after us to participate. Somehow your post just really caught my attention and made me want to do it. Going to be fun 🙂

  1. Thanks for the links, Patti. I don’t think I could identify any but the most common like the cardinal and mockingbird, etc. I’m not good at identifying birds or even at seeing them where I live. I love birds, though. I saw so many more when we lived in Texas. Maybe they don’t like the city?

    1. Bird watching is quite enjoyable, Lenore. We got a feeder for our daughter’s family and the kids love to see who comes to eat. This year I gave them a suet feeder and they’ve seen some new visitors–mainly a squirrel that opened the feeder and absconded with the suet/seed block!

  2. 😆 Gotta love that scruffy handsome warbler. I absolutely adore your photo. It makes me smile in my heart. lol 🙂
    We mostly have robins and bluebirds right now… and crows and hawks and buzzards. I used to feed the birds and take many photos of them, but Baby-cat changed all that. 😉

    1. A cat definitely cuts down on visitors to the yard. Every once in awhile I will spy someone’s cat lurking around. I can tell by the bird “chatter” when they give the intruder alert. I don’t have any regular hawks visiting so far this winter. Last winter there was one that came by almost every day for a pigeon or starling.

  3. Mmmm. KFC does sound good….

    We don’t have many birds in our backyard (small and no trees), but I do adore a quail family that lives next door in an overgrown bush 🙂

    I hope you find lots of birds (and get pictures, too)!
