Spring Bird Count

    On May 18 I did my spring bird count in the area I was assigned. I was happy because I found 20 species and three other species I could not identify. It was  a warm, clear day with very little wind. 

   Now don't expect bird pictures. My point and shoot is not up to bird photos. I did get some decent shots of the area I counted in.

   The area I do is a heavily wooded ravine with old growth forest. Most of the trees are spruce. It's a beautiful area.

Forest entry. You've seen this when it was snowy.

Luckily I saw a reflection
     I see I didn't set the time on my camera so this is a few days from now. I don't know how that's going to work. 
   I hope you liked my bird counting trip.
