Last year, I attending a bird banding event at the Burroughs Audubon Nature Center & Bird Sanctuary and wrote about it here, along with the instructions for a birdseed wreath. I was lucky enough to hold a dark-eyed Junco (commonly called snow birds in our area) and release him.

I learned about the Great Backyard Bird Count, or GBBC, through the Audubon Society, and participated last year. We have had so many newcomers to our feeder in the past year, that I am excited to watch & log the birds. The 2013 Great Backyard Bird Count will take place Feb 15th - Feb 18th.
