Janie BS: Backyard Bird List 2017 (100* d) BS: Backyard Bird List 2017 08 Jan 17


Although most of the interested parties no longer post to Mudcat, this traditionalist will keep it going.

All bird observations welcomed. Rules for your actual backyard list, as originally established by Raptor, are as follows:

You can list any birds you can see while standing on your own property/lot, including fly-overs, or birds you can with surety identify by their call that you hear from you yard, even if you can't sight them. If you have a favorite birdwatching spot elsewhere or an office window, can have a list for them also, but the idea is what birds do you see/hear in a specific location/habitat.

Last year was the first time in several years I have not kept a backyard list, so nothing to report for 2016. I had to take a hiatus from filling the birdfeeders for several months due to being in a wheelchair, then a walker, then a cane, and simply got out of the habit after that. So for over a year the feeders were empty.

Just started filling them again when I retired in December. Started a new list Jan. 1 for 2017.
