The Great Backyard Bird Count is the talk of the town
In three stops, at the library, at the chiropractor's, and at the feed store, everyone was enthusiastic about Adair County's great February family fun pastime, counting the birds, learning about them, and being part of the biggest scientific study in the world, the GBBC
While running my errands on Friday afternoon I couldn't help but notice that everywhere I went the talk was about the Great Backyard Bird Count. First I stopped in at the Adair County Library where Leeann Jesse told me that a bird watcher had been in at 9am to enter their first bird count on the library computers and shortly after that a grandmother stopped by to pick up data sheets so that she and her grandchildren could count all weekend.
They've also received several calls from bird watchers about the library's hours - just so you'll know the library will be open on Saturday from 8am -12pmCT and again on Monday from 8am-6pmCT.
My next stop was at Dr. Rogers office. All this looking up into tree tops has made my neck a bit stiff so I thought that an adjustment might be a good idea. Dr. Rogers and Jennifer Smith were all set to begin counting just as soon as the office closed. I feel better now and am ready for some marathon Counting.
One last stop at Day and Day Feed just in time for me to sit in the parking lot to watch a Black Vulture making lazy circles in the wind. Vultures may not be one of my favorite birds - but their sheer size is impressive. I wonder how many hours the Wright Brothers spent watching birds fly before they built their first airplane. It just goes to show that you can watch the birds everywhere you go. -Barbara Armitage, Adair County Garden Club, (270) 250-2730.
