Pam Dailey already counting - Great Backyard Bird Count

Pam Dailey writes:
Just a reminder that the bird count started today and I didn't see that anyone had posted a link to log in the birds. It's really fun and this morning even the 4 year old great granddaughter was busy with the binoculars watching the birds at the feeder. We logged 13 species this morning. People can either do their log on the internet or send in papers forms. If you already printed this info and I missed it, in the words of Gilda Radner, "Nevermind!". - Pamela Dailey
Thanks, Pamela Dailey for the reminder. We now have one story up, and will be filling in more later today and through the GBBC. - EW
