Please post your observations, comments, or whatever you would like about your time out and about on this day. Or even if you sat and counted from a window in your home, this is the place to tell about it!

Thanks for organizing this group and extending invitations. Weather conditions here will be difficult for birding during the GBBC, but I'll post what I can.

So far I have about a dozen Juncos, mostly males, one male/one female Northern Cardinal, one Blue jay, several Titmice, 8 Goldfinches, 2 WB nuthatches, one male/one female Downy WP, one Red-bellied WP. Official counts will be tabulated later. These were all feeder birds. I have not had a chance to go out yet. I am hoping to catch a Pileated WP and some owls this weekend.

Very cold this morning, single digits. Complete snow cover for the past two weeks. This afternoon, temps rose into the teens

27 species for me today. Two lifers - a male purple finch and a large grouping of double-crested cormorant, around 50 of them. Also for my day were Canada geese, red-shouldered hawk, redheads, pine siskins, cardinals, and a few more to add of to the 27. I am hoping to see the purple finch again tomorrow as he was at my feeder. When I reported him to GBBC, they show him as rare for this time of year. For me, he's rare any time.

I've seen a number of small bird species I can't identify (not an expert), lots of Chickadees, 4 Bald Eagles, 2 Snow Geese, lots of ducks, 4 Magpies, a couple of hawks that I think were Red Tails, 2 doves. And the ever present crows of course.

The weather here in Utah is ridiculous for the time of year, 60F today at my house at 6800 feet, that's April/May weather.

More pictures to come, good ones of the eagles and hawks.

That is terribly warm for such high elevation, Bob. Looking forward to seeing your eagles and hawks! And any others you post.

I was happy to find this group. New to Flickr and new to GBBC this year. The 13th started off great with 12 species. (Turkey Vulture, Mourning Doves, a Downy Woodpecker, Blue Jays, Black-capped Chickadees, Tufted Titmouse, White-breasted Nuthatch, Carolina Wrens, European Starlings, Dark-eyed Juncos, American Goldfinch House Sparrows) A snowy 14th after work resulted in tough birding for this new birder. Perhaps the addition of American Robins was a good sign today. Hoping for better weather during the next couple of days. :)

Sorry I missed your post, Amy. So glad you found us and, more importantly, the bird count. I hope you enjoyed the four days, and learned a lot, like I did.
