10000 Birds – Winter Birding on Home Turf

Most of my blogs for 10000 Birds fall into the”trips” category. I go somewhere new, I’m excited about the experience, I write about it.

But all birders know the value of your home turf, a.k.a. where you bird the most. Your home turf could be your yard, your neighborhood, your county, the place where you know a certain tree limb is popular for Brown-headed Nuthatches, a lamp-post that does double duty as Red-shouldered Hawk perch, or a mailbox known for hosting an annual Carolina Wren nest. Through frequent visits, you time the changing seasons by the alterations of bird activity.
