Great Backyard Bird Count, 2016

We were open last Saturday to celebrate and support the Great Backyard Bird Count. Naturally, we counted birds—and a few others—as well. We recorded our results at eBird, and below.  Notice there are two days!  If you have questions about the Great Backyard Bird Count, eBird, or citizen science, ask us!
