Our backyard is alive with birds.
Watching them and naming them is one of our
favorite past times.
We have a great variety of color.
Barn Swallows are a new bird for me,
here we watch them soar overhead daily.
Blue jays and robins are always in the mix.
The darling starling
(my father hates)
(there everywhere, there everywhere)
And an occasional hummingbird.
Lots of sweet Mourning Doves show up at
the bottom of our feeder
and we often see the Turkey Buzzard gliding
is a bird I was not familiar with.
I had to identify him using my trusty
The Cornell Lab app
I love it!
You type in:
when you saw it
where you saw it
what it was doing
To my knowledge it hasn't been wrong once.
A couple days ago I added this guy to my
list of siting.
Great Crested Flycatcher
