Sitting here watching the news and looking out the window

Please share the view.

In this second I see one blue jay, two orioles and six rose breasted grosbeaks.

Also if you look closely, just below the left railing, there are four turkeys.

11. Western tanagers arrived near Taos this morning

We are also hosting black headed grosbeaks, lazuli buntings, yellow warblers, and pine siskins.
Black throated hummingbirds dive bomb to show their prowess to the females.

21. Love your view!

I love spring and the bird migrations. I have had black chinned sparrows, pine siskins, mourning doves, a pair of wood ducks, eastern phoebes, yellow throated vireos, golden crowned kinglets, cedar waxwings, gold finches, and my resident wrens. I spend a lot of time watching my yard for the migrating birds.

32. birds in our side yard have nestlings

they've been going through a suet cake every two days.

We have one pair of cardinals, a flock of sparrows, one red head woodpecker, about 12 blue jays (peanut eaters), mourning doves, ring necked doves, an ocassional starling and a bunch of squirrels. Our robins passed through about a month ago.

I have to work just to keep up with the bird seed bill.

We're in west central coastal Floriduh and will be moving from this home in 2 weeks. The new home has a slightly larger yard and I'll have to start xeriscaping and planting shrubs for them to feel safe in.

A cup of coffee with them in the morning starts the day right, a happy hour with them in the evening winds it all down the way it should.
