I'm Out Counting Birds!

Lark Sparrow, Corona de Tucson 2-15-09 by Kathiesbirds

The laundry is waiting to be folded. The sink is full of dishes, and the mail is waiting to be sorted, but I am out counting birds on this last day of the GBBC. I've been all over Corona de Tucson and Rio Rico counting birds. If you go to the GBBC website and click on Explore the Results you can check on results from all over the USA, including AZ and Corona de Tucson. Last I checked I was the only one counting in my area so all the birds listed are the ones I have counted!

Gotta go! I'll be around to see you all soon!

Kathie, when you are the only bird counter, how important is the laundry? Your photos over the last 6 monthe that I bave been blogging hae escalated in clarity. An amazing shot.

Thank you for the kind thoughts during my recent incarceration. Not out of the woods yet, but getting there...Hugs.

I echo Arija's sentiments! Your input is even more valuable being the only counter in your area! I think you deserve an award for that!!

Kathie - great to see you have your priorities right! I mentioned you in my GBBC post - with a great deal of envy I might add :)

I agree, you do have your priorities in order Kathie. Well done for doing the birding world such a great service and I do love that little sparrow photo.

Love the photo of the Lark Sparrow!

It's great you got out to count, otherwise there would have been no checklists for your area.

Way to go Kathie!!! I did it for all 4 days too and my house is a mess as well, but it is so worth it.

I bet you did real well too. I think it's awesome that you took the lead for your area so they will know what birds there are there. Your dedication paid off in spaids!

The wonderful 'posed' shots you get! The birds must see you coming with your camera and just get all spiffed up and ready. What's your secret?!
