Backyard Birds

back yard birdsRecently at my Photography forums at Unique Exposures, we discussed birds and what was my secret to attracting them to my backyard. I didn’t really have a secret to share except that I offer suet and seeds for them regularly.

A member, Johnstox, said he was starting a list of birds that he could name that came to his backyard, which prompted me to create my own list.

So far, and to the best of my memory here are the birds that have come to our deck and yard:

Blue Jay
American Crow
Red-Winged Blackbird
Rose-breasted Grosbeak
Tufted Titmouse
Eastern Bluebird
American Goldfinch
Baltimre Oriole
House Finch
Brown Creeper
Red-breasted Nuthatch
White-breasted Nuthatch
Downy Woodpecker
Hairy Woodpecker
Red-bellied Woodpecker
Ladder backed Woodpecker
Yellow bellied Sapsucker
Mourning Dove
Turkey Vulture
Red-tailed Hawk (not sure that is correctly identified yet)
Great White Heron
Mallard Duck (They like our swimming pool)
and recently I can add a white-throated sparrow!


I have to really tell you, that there is little more fascinating than watching these creatures.
I would invite everyone to turn off their televisions, and go enjoy God’s little birds!





Also, I sure invite you
to have a gander at
