Tell us about your first bird of the day

April 22nd, 2011 · by Garrison Frost

We do it every Friday, and it’s fun. When you look outside for the first time today, just make note of the first bird you see. Then come back here and tell us what it was. You can use this link, or just post a comment below. We’ll take responses until around noon, then bring back a full list later in the afternoon. We typically get responses from all over California and beyond. And the lists are amazing. Have fun. (photo of Red-tailed Hawk by George Gentry/USFWS)

    Very great idea. I love the weekly stats. I’m in for next week. This is a weekly habit I can get into. Thanks for doing this! Birderloo
