Goodbye Old Yard List--Hello New

This morning as I was doing the final cleaning out of our old townhouse, I heard a Red-bellied Woodpecker calling from across the street--yard bird #29 and my last yard bird for this place. Over the past two crazy weeks, while I've been totally swamped with GBBC and the explosion of bird flu into 13 new countries, we've refinished floors, painted, and moved into a new rowhouse in Perkasie. Despite the small yard, it is next to a park along Perkiomen Creek (the same creek that Audubon lived along at Mill Grove), and has a lot more habitat potential than the almost sterile new townhome community we just moved from. The new yard list is already up to 18 species and we've just moved in. I fully expect to get over 50 species there this year if I can get some migrants coming through the neighboring trees.
