This past month I've tried to keep a record of all the different birds that have visited the bird buffet or just roosted in the now bare trees just long enough for me to get some not so great photos. The tufted titmouse is a frequent visitor and doesn't stay still for picture-taking. Maybe should be renamed the blurred titmouse!
Here are others spotted in the yard in November:
Clockwise: northern male cardinal and house sparrows, cardinal, blue jay ( first snow of the season)
Clockwise: mourning dove, cardinal, hawk (no idea which kind), the black-eared Chetbird, Carolina wren, Carolina chickadee
Clockwise: male house or purple finch, trapeze artist, juvenile European starling, dark-eyed junco, mourning dove, northern mockingbird
Clockwise: brown creeper or downy woodpecker, another woodpecker - hairy or ladder back?, hawk, white-breasted nuthatch, American crow, red-bellied woodpecker
I'm still learning about how to ID the birds that visit--get right maybe 50% of the time. Just wish I'd started with this interest a long time ago. Could spend hours watching them out the window--and sometimes do!
