Saw my FOS (first of season) Dark-eyed Junco this morning! It was hanging out with a Yellow-rumped warbler hopping around my back deck. Quite a variety of birds as I was eating breakfast. Here's the eBird list:

@eric How do you keep track of the number of individuals you see like that?

I usually have a bunch of tufted titmice, black-capped chickadees and dark-eyed juncos flitting in and out of the trees in my back yard, but I can’t tell them apart well enough to know if I’m double-counting them.

@pganssle When I'm stationary, it's basically the max that I can see at one time. If you can distinguish male from female birds, that helps to know you're not double counting.
