Tweet and See: March 2011

Visit Kingdom Arrows to participate!
Heather has a fabulous give-away running in conjunction with Tweet and See this month.  You can enter to win one copy of Your Backyard DVD!  I love this video, in large part because a homeschooling family produced it (Yea Homeschool!), but also because it is very well done.  We own a copy and enjoy watching it!

Now, for our list for the month of March...

It was a wacky month weather wise.  We had bitterly cold spells, days that felt like summer, rain, thunder storms, high winds and tornadoes.  Birding was a challenge, but the boys had to keep at it because their science fair project centered on bird watching.  It won the grand prize in their age division!! Hopefully, I will have a few minutes to post about it soon.  It was very interesting! :)

Anyhoo, here are the birds that we saw or heard this month:
  • Dark-eyed Junco
  • Northern Cardinal
  • Blue Jay
  • Tufted Titmouse
  • Carolina Wren
  • Carolina Chickadee
  • Eastern Towhee
  • Mourning Dove
  • Red-bellied Woodpecker
  • Downy Woodpecker
  • Pileated Woodpecker
  • American Robin
  • Brown Thrasher
  • Common Grackle
  • Northern Mockingbird
  • Brown-headed Nuthatch
  • Yellow-rumped Warbler
  • Gray Catbird
  • Rock Pigeon
  • American Crow
  • Fish Crow
  • Red-tailed Hawk
  • Red-shouldered Hawk
  • Eastern Bluebird
  • House Sparrow
That's 25 species in all!  Most of these were identified by my two birdie boys, Orville and Wilbur.  Good job, guys!

Thanks for visiting and make sure you fly over to Heather's blog to enter the give-away!

Happy Birding!
