About this Blog

I've set up this new blog as a place to keep my day lists. My posts here won't have any stories, pictures, links, etc., just lists. I already have a regular blog for all of those other things at Home Bird Notes.

In the lists on this blog:
(h) means the bird was seen at home (a homebird)
(a) means the bird was seen elsewhere (an away bird)
(h/a) means the bird was seen both at home and elsewhere
