If anyone wants to keep up-to-date on bird sightings in DeKalb County, I recommend getting on their birding email list (I just joined recently). Send an email to Mike Andrews (webird [at] tbc.net) {replace the [at] with @}

There are over 100 birders on this email list and being connected with DeKalb birders is good for our bird club (and for finding cool birds!).

Rock Cut State Park on Saturday: 10 Common Loons, 12 Great Blue Herons, dozen Ruddy Ducks and a mix of others. We were only there for 45 minutes or so before the snow/rain got too annoying.

Yard update: we have 3 Hermit Thrushes, Fox Sparrow, Song Sparrow, and Ruby-crowned Kinglet in the yard.
