Re: Yard-birding poll & eBird #poll

Dale Smith

Hi Dave,

Yes, I participate in FeederWatch. My count days are Wednesday and Thursday. There have been weeks this winter when I had zero birds.

So far today, we have had 2 Mourning Doves, 2 Blue Jays, 3 Starlings and one each of Common Grackle and Red-wing Blackbird. Slim pickings!

Stay well...Dale

To Dale Smith.  Do you do project feeder watch for Cornell?   I do every weekend.  Feeder watch has been slim to a bonanza in the west.  Dave Croft

Yes, I responded.  I don't actively bird the yard/neighborhood, but when I see something besides finches, junkos and mourning doves, I often do register them on eBird.   However, being a bit anal already and having a daily to-do list of six things, I'm not willing to commit to doing this on a guaranteed basis.

I flake, as usual.

A new poll has been created:

Some of you are already doing this, but here's a poll for SJBird members.  

1)  Do you live in San Joaquin Co?
