Here is my first report for the worldwide Great Backyard Bird Count from a blessedly sunny Valentine's morning:
Mourning Dove -- 5
Carolina Chickadee -- 3
Red-Breasted Nuthatch -- 1
Ruby-Crowned Kinglet -- 1
American Robin -- 7
Pine Warbler -- 2
Eastern Towhee -- 2
Chipping Sparrow -- 3
Field Sparrow -- 4
Northern Cardinal -- 2
American Goldfinch -- 1
After being socked with a devastating ice storm that has knocked out power for hundreds of thousands of folks in this region, it sure was refreshing to see a bunch of plump Robins hopping around the yard. Maybe they know better than any stupid groundhog that Spring is just around the corner.
Okay, now Superdawg and I are going for a walk and see how many other birds we can spot -- maybe some water birds, surely some hawks, maybe a territorial Mockingbird or two.
