I just do not see many out of town. I live five miles from the nearest town. It have a gigantic population 584 people, one cafe, and one church, a few small businesses, and a (We really upgraded in the wold a few years ago.) dollar general!

Congrats on the upgrade!!  ;)

Back when I lived in Michigan during spring migration I used to get cool stuff in my yard... like these Blackpoll Warblers (forgive the phone photos didn't have access to a camera back then)

I don't have a list for the yard!  But since I moved to eastern WA I've added a say's Phoebe, rough-legged hawk and a Wilson's snipe.  I gotta say we listened to that darn snipe everyday and well into the night last summer - If that winnowing is a mating call that is the loneliest snipe on the planet!

If you use eBird, you can sort your lists by the location.  You can also set up a 'Home Yard' and eBird will keep the stats for you automatically.

If you're not using it but are interested, let me know if you want help getting started.

20 Apr 2020 Baldwin AL  Latest, (& most exciting) yardlist sightings:  Neither are lifers for me, but saw my first Rose-Breasted Grosbeak of the season and my first White-Winged Dove for my Yardlist.

Not in my yard, but in my neighbors yard, Blue Grosbeak a week or so ago, and this morning down the road a bit,  a Prairie Warbler and a Common yellowthroat.  All 3 are first sightings for this year.

Latest for me was American Goldfinch. They are surprisingly uncommon out here on the Cali central coast.

Just did a re-count of my yard list, and its actually at 100 species.

As of tonight, my yard list is at 85. Added Belted Kingfisher in a flyover.

 

Our yard isn't nearly as birdy as it used to be. They cut down a ton of trees behind our house and put in an apartment complex. Sigh.

Blue-winged Warbler and a Gray-cheeked Thrush have pushed me to 149.  Best Day, Month and Year were hit with what finally looked like. Spring migration day yesterday.

If you see it from your yard, it counts!  (Me, I include all the way out to the center of the road.

I don't keep track of my yard list, but I know I got a new one today. I heard Eurasian-collard Dove, which I'm not happy of, they were in the valley below, but never got up here previously.
