Great Backyard Bird Count

Well, it's the day after the end of the Great Backyard Bird Count. We hope you all counted for the GBBC and remember, you have until March 1st to submit your checklists!

Where to begin? Geez. We have been super busy the last few days. We went and counted at quite a few places. Over the next few days, we'll be posting pics of our trips. We went to Laurelhurst Park, Mt. Tabor, Powell Butte, Jackson Bottom Wetlands and, of course, our own backyard. We added 7 new Life List birds and 9 new Year List birds! It was an incredible few days. We had so much fun hiking and counting and enjoying time away from home with each other. So, without further ado, here are some of the pics we took. We hope you enjoy.

Wow, dig that Winter Wren shot. That's a hard one to get to sit still.
