New Bird!

OK, it wasn't a fancy or rare bird, and it wasn't the flock of robins in the above photo, but today was the first time I've identified a White-throated sparrow in my backyard. That brings my life list up to 212.

I got too disorganized to participate fully, but I did manage to send in one list to the Great Backyard Bird count today. I cheated just a little by including species I saw both yesterday and today instead of submitting two lists--I hope that doesn't skew the statistics for all of the scientific world of ornithology!
