We did the same sort of thing earlier this month for the Great Backyard Bird Count sponsored by Cornell University but what the heck, I'm happy to do it again. Large garden, bounded by woods on two sides and by fields on two sides. Vernon River, Prince Edward Island, Canada.
Rural garden with mix of deciduous and coniferous trees bordering arable farmland, looking towards Nature Reserve Woodland. Ellington, Cambridgeshire. Lots of sky and a few pylons always worth scanning.
Abbadia San Salvatore, Tuscany, Italy. small town at 850 metres altitude. Mostly Chestnut and Austrian Pine mixed woods around town, Beech higher up. 2nd floor flat with small covered (less sky!) at the front looking onto street and more blocks of flats. Back window looks over more flats and mixed woodland. No garden but some space in front of garage. More possibilities within the 300 metres radius we are permitted to exercise in.
