Hi all!  Wondering if any of you will be participating in the Great Backyard Bird Count (Feb. 15-18) here in Albuquerque.  I have never done it, but am thinking about it for this year.  If anyone has done it before, and has some advice, tips and tricks, good places (besides my back yard) to plant myself for a few hours, I'd love to hear your wisdom.

It's sounds fascinating, and I've been thinking about going too, Bob... Send any suggestions when you can.

I'm interested. Thanks for the link, Bob W. It might be fun if we all posted our results here.

I think it would be fun if we all met at a certain place and did the watch together.  I'm open to suggestions!  I live west of the river, near I-40, but I can travel.

Could be educational as well.  I'm no expert myself, just a backyard birder who's got some of the regulars down.  Anyone else out there interested in a group meet for this event?

Looks like there's already something cooking for the count:

Thanks Skip. I think I'll try to go to either the Saturday Bird Count at Tingley Beach (8-12) or the Sunday one at the Botanic Garden (same time).  Whichever day is warmer!!!  Maybe one of us could hold a "burque birding" sign, so we can identify our members?
