By the way my daugther has been hand feeding an Exotic fully feathered English Blackbird chick for the last week. She rescued it from the road outside dueing a drought breaker storm that is still causing minor flooding. Chick is eating lots of worms, cooked fish, chicken, peas, watermellon, bread,milk & yoghurt.
Enjoy all birds new & old. Plz put out bird baths & water dishs for our feathered, fured & scally friends.
Happy Birding / spotting & have a great Valentine Day.

Yes, I knew I've been counting all day and will log my observations. Our little backyard bird garden is constant joy to my mother . I would like to see more participation in all the ways to enjoy birding.
How popular is the Great Backyard Bird Count in your area? Will you participating in it this weekend?
Hello - I'm here on the east coast....close to a place named Hawk Mountain. It's a huge migratory route for many species of birds, especially raptors, so the Backyard Bird Count is always played up in this area!
Yes - I'll be watching!!
