Tweet and See

I was inspired by Barb, Harmony Art Mom, who challenged me to keep a Bird List of all the birds we see each month.  So, December was the first month of this new adventure.  I have to admit, I do not have any handy-dandy birding binoculars (HINT:  Birthday Idea), so  these are birds that came to our feeder or that our family just saw as we were going about our business.

Typically this post will be the last day of the month, but since our whole family was laying in bed for 12 days sick with the flu, we are a little late.  I will be adding a Mr. Linky at the end of  January and we want as many friends to join in with us as possible. 

So, start your list!

I just hung a paper up on the wall that I added to as we saw or heard birds.  Very easy and low key.  Oh, "Tweet and See," do you get it??

Here Goes:
  • Carolina Wren
  • American Coot
  • Goldfinch
  • Bluebird
  • American Crows
  • Canada Geese
  • Black Capped Chickadee
  • Northern Cardinal
  • Mockingbird
  • House sparrows
  • Sandhill Cranes
  • Bluejay
On our trip to see Olive Plants we saw or heard:
  • Pine Warbler
  • Belted Kingfisher
  • Killdeer
Happy Birding,


  1. I'm glad you've gotten started, Heather! I'm on day 16 of sickness (flu became bronchitis), but we'll start our list soon so we can participate.

  2. Oh, and I love the name and the badge! Really cute...so much so that I was on my way to bed and realized I hadn't told you that and had to come back and write it!!!

  3. This is a great idea...I will keep a list and share at the end of the month. You already have a great list!

  4. GREAT idea! I linked up! Now, my link up says that it's on conifers, but it seems to go to my Tweet and See. I don't know what I did! LOL (I copy-and-pasted the URL into the linky box...) Anyway, it'll be fun to see what others see!

    Finally sat down to type out the list. We have kept a copy of the Simimonthly Bird Checklist by the telescope for the month. I think I will start a monthly notebook and keep track!
