Welcome 2020, And A New Year Of Counting Birds Begins…

Happy New Year Everyone! By now most of you know that I do a yearly bird count, because you never know which year may end up being your BIG year… The last few years I haven’t gone too crazy birding, but instead I’ve tried concentrating on adding new lifers to my list. Last year I added 13 to my list! Come January 1st every year without fail, I get excited and start counting all the birds in my yard and then by the springtime I’ll try to get in a few bird walks with guides. Unfortunately, come the summer, the birds get quiet and the leaves get thick, so I start to find less and less birds and seem to lose interest. But that’s a problem for another day, for now I’m just ready to get outside and start counting!

Here is my list from January 1st 2020:

I’ve included a few photos of some of the birds I saw…

Great Blue Heron, Mallard, Yellow-bellied Sapsucker, Tufted Titmouse, House Finch, Red-headed Woodpecker, Dark-eyed Junco, Chipping Sparrow, Mourning Dove, Northern Cardinal, Carolina Wren, Carolina Chickadee, Double-crested Cormorant, Red Shouldered Hawk, White Breasted Nuthatch, White-throated Sparrow, Downy Woodpecker, Song Sparrow, American Crow, Turkey Vulture, Blue Jay, Northern Flicker, Eastern Bluebird, Northern Mockingbird, Eastern Phoebe, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Canada Goose and Cooper’s Hawk
