backyard bird collage
     Lots of birds build their nests around here and bring their babies to our large shady yard to catch worms and crickets. Robins, cardinals, bluejays, tufted titmice, chickadees, several varieties of woodpeckers, brown thrashers, flycatchers, mockingbirds, house finches, American gold finches, sparrows and wrens are common. Ruby-throated hummingbirds frequent the feeders in late summer. Some years we see indigo buntings or cedar waxwings.
Take the bird test. Some answers are on this page.
