Marcel in Calgary, ex-Montreal, is also doing a Walking Big Year (see previous post for details) and has suggested this concept be called a Big Green Big Year for which the acronym is BGBY, pronounced “Bigby” as in “I’m just going out Bigbying, dear” or “I added two new species to my Bigby today”. Is there, you are asking yourselves any connection here to Bunburying and the answer is, only if you carry your binoculars in a handbag.

Meanwhile, here are a few guys who visited the garden this morning:

Red-breasted Nuthatch

White-breasted Nuthatch

Black-capped Chickadee …

… and finally, the only picture I could get of either a House Finch or a Common Redpoll. Hmmm!
