25th Annual GBBC!

Recommended Posts

The 25th annual GBBC is starting tomorrow and ends Sunday. My goal is to get 75 species in my county. Going to try to get a couple  species of owls tonight. Ebird encourages you to make a trip report, so here is mine.


Here is the article with the info on the GBBC

Fun fact it starts on my birthday! Here’s my trip report. hopefully I’ll be able to visit this This one cemetery  and get some owl lifers!!!

I just noticed that your trip report is only three days. The GBBC is 17-20th. You can edit the trip report if you want. This article explains how to.

I went out this morning to the cemetery and a restaurant/event facility with a nice garden; it always has Eurasian Collared Doves 😞 But I also got a White-Winged Dove, which I have never seen in my city before (they are common at lower elevations) and a couple of American Kestrels. Also some migrant warblers, Western Tanagers, and a Baltimore Oriole.

I’m at 12 species and I was planning to do my main bird outings tomorrow, but now we’re in the middle of a snowfall warning so doubt I’ll be heading out. So I’ll probably stay at 12 unless something shows up in my yard.

Did a quick drive by today to see if I could spot the hawk owl again and found him perched on a spruce, so he’s once again my best bird. Even though I’ve seen him 3 times now (never gets old). 
Definitely missing the hordes of redpolls I had at this time last year. Still missing them from my year list.
