Great Backyard Bird Count is Here!

This weekend is the Great Backyard Bird Count sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Audubon Society. From February 17 to February 20 everyone is encouraged to join in counting birds. Today we saw several birds in the backyard at the feeders with one guest we had never seen before, a Northern Harrier!  It landed on one end of a horizontal pole that contained a suet feeder at the other end. I was not quick enough to get a photograph before it flew away even though it was on a tripod ready to shoot.  I was only about 20 feet from the camera. 🙁   However, I did get several shots of a beautiful cardinal and red bellied woodpecker. See “The Mystery at the Birdfeeder” facebook page for a list of the birds we counted earlier today. Also please “like”.   🙂
