Re: Great Backyard Bird Count


Ha - they must be. They love that shelter I built for them and renew w/
fresh brush every winter. I've got at least 15 adults and about 5 or 6
juveniles. But they are here all year round, like my robins, cardinals
and blue jays. I've got some kind of chickadees in pretty big numbers
too. Don't know if they're black-capped or Carolina. Pretty though
regardless. And little olive drab goldfinches all over the place. Some
other smallish brownish birds too. Some sort of wren perhaps? House
finches seem more plentiful in the temperate weather, they must go to
Noreen's when it gets cold here. A couple hairy or downy woodpeckers pop
in and out too. Can't see how long the bill is to tell the difference.
Just started about a dozen cuttings of the butterfly roses. We'll see if
I can get any to root this time. The neighbors are always after me for
them.
