Counting birds

I just participated in the National Gardenbirds Count organized by the Dutch Society for the Protection of Birds (Vogelbescherming) and the Organization for Research on Birds (SOVON). For half an hour I counted the birds in our front garden, which has a few inches of snow, but several fatballs and nuts. It was fun spying for birds behind the window. I counted the following: 5 blackbirds, 4 great tits, 2 finches, 2 pigeons and 1 sparrow. All over the country people are counting birds this weekend and the results are used to gain knowledge about the number of garden birds this year. What a fun way to start my day!
