Here's a sheet from last season. The "T" figure by House Finch is the total number I saw but I was unable to say how many males and how many females. I did note how many of each I was able to identify at the same time. I don't even try on the Juncos though if in sunlight and if I get a good look through the binocs I can tell. When I enter the counts online and I enter a count for any species of finch it asks me if I checked for an eye disease that's been going around and I report any cases. I've never actually seen one with the disease. I sometimes take pictures as my camera has more zoom in it than my binocs. I mention gender counts in a comments section. There's also a way to cite instances of conflict, either predation attempts or displacement from a feeder spot, IDing each species involved, whether the attempt was successful, and any description I might want to add. I usually don't do that except in exceptional cases as there are just hundreds of such on a given day, and they want each distinct event recorded uniquely. But they only ask you to do that if you feel like it.



So they have symbols for male, female, and "T". What is "T"?


I put all the names and symbols on the sheet. The "T" means total (both sexes) if I need it. There are no transsexual birds allowed in my yard.

But for House Finch you have 3 male, 2 female, and 13 total!

I counted them first then started checking them with the binoculars for the gender and that's how many I could sex within my view through them. The lighting must have been dim (overcast) or I could have told them all apart with my unaided vision.

Also, even on a good day I really need to use the binoculars or a camera to check for that eye disease.

No, they were just shaking on a deal they made. When you come outside they're going to try and land a bird turd on your head and the first one who does it gets first crack at a suet cake.

You forgot to ask "Is it a parrot?" if it's dead.
