Hi everyone. Well this year my mom has got all sorts of birds visiting her yard. We sit on the deck and watch and take pictures. I'll update as I get a new bird to share, from rare to common birds. By the way, if I mislabel a bird, feel free to to point it out, but I expect a link to your proof.
Let's get started.
American Crow (Mom has named him Crackers, I'm naming the next one Drinky)
Goldfinches! We have never seen these in the yard before.
I love the look on this one's face. WTF?!?!
Another Goldfinch and a House Finch
These 2 also excited us.
An Evening Grosbeak
And a Blackheaded Grosbeak. I thought this one was a Towhee, until I researched it more. We've seen Towhees as well, but I don't have a good picture yet.
That's it for now, but I will continue to update as new birds appear and I get better pictures of some of the others.
