2012 Great Backyard Bird Count

All manner of birds have passed through the garden this winter, but cardinals are among the most common right now. Spotted ten Northern Cardinals having breakfast this morning at the feeder. The birds perch among the evergreen branches of two ‘Carolina Sapphire’ Arizona Cypress trees, where they can check out the feeder.  Or they may tuck themselves just inside the Spirea shrub to watch for an opening. The bright red coloring of the male cardinals makes them easy to follow.

Just found out recently the 15th annual Great Backyard Bird Count (GBBC) is coming up.

For four days between February 17 – 20, 2012, people across North America will be counting birds and reporting their results online. I will join the count this year for the first time.
