Great Backyard Bird Count Underway!

[Photo: Missouri resident Gary Mueller submitted this charming photo of his lego bird feeder the national project, and his photo is gaining national attention....]The annual Great Backyard Bird Count is in its third day now, and so far, Missouri birdwatchers have documented 125 species! Visit here to explore the data collected in Missouri. It's not too late to join the count and start submitting checklists. It's fun to see that my friend in Troy has documented 41 species, making him ranked #6 in species totals. A Columbia birder in my Audubon chapter has seen 36 species, so she's in the top ten for species richness, too. What better way to spend a very cold weekend than watching birds flock to your feeders to devour your seed?
