The 2013 Great Backyard Bird Count, February 15-18, 2013, is sponsored by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Birdwatchers across the country count birds and then report the numbers on-line. Although it may seem that crows are everywhere, the Northern Cardinal is reported on the most lists nearly every year, far above the crow. Well, if there's a male cardinal at your feeder, it is pretty hard to miss! Birds reported in the highest numbers have been the European Starling and the American Robin, and more recently Tree Swallows and Snow Geese!
