Yard List

My thought on having a yard list posted on my Blog is quite simple. Everyone should keep one. Especially if you have a yard. And since I’ve had a yard for sometime, I want to share the different types of birds that can appear right in your own yard. There is one rule to this. And that is, if I can see it from my yard it counts. Even if it’s flying overhead. Having different lists makes this hobby fun.

  1. Nice, I’m only at 45 at my house. I can tell that we must live in different habitats with me much more wooded and your’s more open. I have about 8 species of warbler on my list, but I would never get swallows, or a field sparrow or even a red-tailed hawk.

  2. I agree, keeping a yard list is a great idea. 107 at Zoar Acres.
