The differnce between a crow and a rave

The Great Backyard Bird Count is over and all I saw were crows and ravens. It's like all the birds decided to stay hidden from our yard for the three days, so I'm glad I wasn't the only one counting. Six checklists were submitted by four different groups in Houston to the online database (explore it here: www.birdcount.org). Twelve species were recorded, and 179 individual birds spotted; everything from Downy woodpeckers and black-capped chickadees to Bohemiam waxwings and Pine Grosbeaks.
