Garden list: 70 up

I've been waiting quite a few months for my magic 70th garden bird......sadly my 70th garden bird turned out to be the Ovenbird that crashed into my glass door yesterday. I hope that the little dude made a speedy and full recovery. I'd love to get my garden list up to 100 over the next couple of years. I made a few landscaping improvements this year and hopefully I can continue these over the next few years.

Congrats on #70, I hope it is doing OK wherever it is right now. One tip on increasing yard list birds: listen for nocturnal migrants! You'd be surprised about what's migrating overhead. This is assuming you're cool with "heard only" species that aren't actually using your yard.

Interesting idea Mike, I never thought about that. I count fly overs, although I'm not sure what my official policy is as far as head only species. I'll have to call a meeting of the board to check on that one ;-)
