the view from Long Pond to my house, the second white blob from the left
Based on my conversations with Laura and Susan, I've updated my yard list: 66 species! (fireworks sounds)
Before, my list had 35 species: 35 different kinds of birds that had actually landed in my yard. But when I count the marsh and Neighbor Ed's yard (both places I can see from my yard) and the air above my yard and the marsh, then I get 66. 35 isn't bad, but 66 absolutely rocks.
What do you consider a "yard bird" when making out your list? Or do you even bother to keep count?
