Yea. Theres a competition every year to see who can spot the most birds. If you can identify them by sound it counts too. Its all on the honor system though, so people can lie. There was a movie about it, Jack Black was in it, it was delightful.
Oh that sounds pretty neat. I do like birds, my favorites are Owls and Cardinals..
But the morning bird choirs and pecking set my teeth on edge.
