To all of you who have birdies outside your windows, and who doesn't. This weekend is the Great Backyard Bird Count.
All they ask for is at least 15 minutes of watching and counting the fevvers of wherever you are. Home, work, school. They use this to see where birdies are and how their habitats and habits are changing. The more data the better the study.
Mum and I did this for the first time in 2007, and then we also got hooked up with Project Feeder Watch, which we now do every weekend, all winter long.
Here I am sitting on my pillow waiting for birdies to come by. This was on our snowy day so I didn't see much but snow.
Here is a picture that mum took of the back yard before she walked all around to clear the snow from the roof and patio. With the drifts in places it was between mid-calf to knee high with snow. But with the sunny day, things are clear and dry so mum can get around easy.
