(apologies to those stuck inside in the office - feel free to add on when you go out for lunch!)


Just heard one of the song sparrows that lurk around here through the kitchen window.

1. I was probably in my cubicle when you posted this, but
I'm sitting in my livingroom by the window watching the day break right now. The first bird I hear this morning is a house finch, probably the one who has a nest under my second floor deck. Now I hear a hairy woodpecker, a house wren, a scrub jay, a spotted towhee and someone's rooster. :)

We have a lot of song sparrows around but I don't hear one at the moment.

3. nice -yesterday I heard and saw a Carolina chickadee, tufted titmouse,
Edited on Thu Jul-09-09 11:31 AM by tigereye
song sparrows, mourning dove, cardinals, blue-jays, crows, American Goldfinches, mockingbirds, Eastern Kingbird, mallards at a local amusement park and house sparrows. The day before at our pool we saw several scarlet tanagers- male and female, and an Indigo bunting - I also heard an indigo bunting at my brother's house on the 4th of July. Couldn't see him, though, he was hiding.


And now I can see them even better with my new binoculars- birthday present from my menfolk.

Had a Swallow-tailed Kite come about 50 ft from my window earlier, but didn't hear it.
