The Vultures Win by One!

bird chartLast week went to the birds, literally! We have been counting and charting birds we see in the neighborhood. Actually we saw quite a few more, but ran out of chart space.

After naming the species, we noted feeding and nesting habits, plus our best guess on beak types.

bird tallyWhen the week was through we added up the tally. Lo and behold, the Vultures win!
Not exactly sure what that says about our neighborhood (ha ha) but we sure had fun with this chart.

@Lin: We did last week, then again we have a lot of roadkill too so they are well fed. Maybe we just have a few more bad drivers than other areas, lol!

What a fun project. I guess the vultures are the bravest ones to come around now that Mr. Tabby has been hanging out.

Cool project! Do you know about the annual Great Backyard Bird Count?

@Vixen: Mr. Tabby versus the Vultures, hate to see the outcome of that fight!
@Holly: I did not know about it, too bad we did it on the wrong week. Now we know for next year, thanks!
