My Not-So-Great Backyard Bird Count

I tried to participate in the Great Backyard Bird Count sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology this weekend, but when I looked out the window, this was all I saw...no birds!  Oh well...at least I tried...


  1. This was quite a funny post. You put a big smile on my face. Did you try hanging a bird feeder?

  2. Thanks, KL. I have a suet feeder in the back and a standard feeder for the front yard, but because I can't guarantee that I'll be around all the time to keep them full, I haven't been using them. Around the corner, a house has a feeder or two, and they've always got plenty of visitors, it seems!
