I’m very happy to say that I’ve found 100 different species of birds in the five-mile radius (5MR) around my home! My original goal was to find 100 species by end of January, so even though it took me a bit longer than I expected, I’m still excited to have seen this many birds.
The last two … Red-breasted Sapsucker and Fox Sparrow … I found this morning in my own backyard, thanks to the Great Backyard Bird Count, which I’m participating in this weekend.
Check out “5MR Birding” on the pull-down menu at the top of my blog for a complete list of birds. Thanks!
