I've missed the last two GBBCs because I was out of the country on a
birding trip (tough luck.....) but this year I returned from Belize
and Guatemala in time to do the GBBC.  I just watched my backyard and
only had 19 species total, but I had a new yard bird....a fox sparrow!
 I'm catching up with you, Margy T!   HA!    (private joke....)
