Countdown to the Rockford Count

Sam and Patty Oliveri report that they have 5 Fox Sparrows, 1 White-crowned Sparrow, 2 Red-winged Blackbirds and 1 Savannah Sparrow (good photo) at their feeder today. 1 Chipping Sparrow and the Eastern Towhee are still coming to the Brown feeder. Feeders are the places to search for birds tomorrow! If Martin Kehoe records the birds he saw at feeders the other day, like the Grackle, this could start to add up to something.

Barbara and I still have a sapsucker, several robins,2 White-throated Sparrows, a few siskins and 3 Golden-crowned Kinglets hanging around our place.

If, for some reason, someone out there is reading this post who has feeders within the count circle (basically the northwest quadrant of Winnebago Co. but not including the towns of Pecatonica, Winnebago or Durand, please contact me to let me know where you live and what birds were at your feeder (species and numbers of each). If you read somewhere that there is a $5 fee for participants, that does NOT apply to feeder watchers. Thanks.
