Great Backyard Bird Count

It's almost time for the Great Backyard Bird Count. It will be held February 15 - 18, 2008. This is something the kids and I really enjoy doing.

This morning right before we headed out the door for church, I saw a Purple Finch at one of our feeders. It is the first one I have seen this winter and possibly the first one I have ever seen. Whatever the case I had to look it up in our bird book to find out the name.

We have also been enjoying the four Mallard Ducks down on the creek behind our house. They were there again when we arrived home from church this afternoon.

Take some time to enjoy the feathered creatures God has created!

Thanks for reminding me of this! We have not participated in the past and look forward to doing so this year!
