The Great Backyard Bird Count starts today!

    Well, today is the first day of the Great Backyard Bird Count. I had decided I was going to get up and go to the nesting colony. (You don't HAVE to stay in your backyard for this) Counted well over 60 wood storks, several snowy egrets, great herons and some anhingas!  Its not as crowded as I've seen it in years past. But maybe they're just getting started.  
     Lots of activity! Flying in and out, feeding and gathering nest building materials.  Nothing like a low flying stork heading my way to really wake me up!!! It was close enough I could feel the air being pushed off its wings! Very great start to my day!

    Go to   http://www.birdsource.org/gbbc/   and check it out! You can report from all over the world!    Happy bird counting everyone!
