My garden bird list is currently sitting at 69 and I'm wondering what bird will take me to 70. I've been hoping for a Brown Thrasher but for some reason I haven't seen one in the area. I'm sure if my bird calls were better I'd be able to add another 2 or 3 birds to my garden list. Maybe I'll get some Fall migrants moving through. What's your garden list at? What's your latest and greatest bird?
By the way, my 200 post mark/event has come and gone without me even noticing it. I'm pretty amazed that I have already posted over 200 posts - wow. I guess I'll celebrate when I reach 300.
It looks like most of my Tree Swallows have fledged, which means that they'll be leaving soon. Unlike some of my other birds, the Tree Swallows use the nesting box and then they move on. They start nesting relatively late (compared to my other garden birds) and they leave the garden pretty early. It will be sad to see them go, but I'm hopeful that they'll be back next year to announce my official start of Spring.
