Tomorrow it will be 60 and even more birds will come over from the eastern shore which is a really big place for flocks of migrating birds. Down at the beach there are tons of sea birds too. I like the terns and sandpipers

Most I counted of each at one time during a short period of time.

32 doves
13 chickadees
9 bluejays
2 downy woodpeckers
1 hairy woodpecker
1 white-breasted nuthatch
1 starling

That's mostly all the birds I'm getting this time of the winter. I think I saw one lone Red Poll a couple of days ago. Those and the goldfinches should be coming back strong before too long. :)

we will be in the 60's today!

Just an fyi for anyone who feels like counting birds. lol I've only done it once so far (just learned of it a year or two ago) but it's kind of interesting to see the results as they come in on the map on their website. It helps them to see what is going on in the bird population.
