We’ve enjoyed welcoming some new birders to our monthly bird monitoring walks. This more than makes up for the quiet of the winter species counts at our a Viewing Window. These walks are the last Saturday of every month. We record those observations over on eBird.
Before you head over there, though, enjoy this short but sweet December window observation list. What’s your favorite of the species listed here? How come ?
Well, November was quieter! Or at least, our whiteboard is less cluttered. In addition to spending more time with off-site programs and in the back office, the species count is usually lower this time of year as well.
October is such a rich month. Migration trails off, yes, and the foliage is mostly past by the end of the month. But for us, it’s a month rich with volunteers, birding, and a sense of getting ready for a behind-the-scenes season.
Enjoy the double-list this month, and read on for why!
