Some of our Birds

Hi! I thought I'd do a post on some of the birds in our yard. Here are some of the most common:

Northern Cardinal. Sorry this is kind of blurry. It was taken early this year so it looks pretty cold.

Eastern Bluebird. Sorry about the weird angle. This one is a male. We have tons of bluebirds nesting in our yard each year. I was so excited about that when we moved here!

American Goldfinch. I love these birds. They're so pretty. This is either a female or a male in his winter plumage.

Eastern Pheobe. We have a lot of these birds, too. If you imitate their "pheee--beee" call they will call back to you. This one is the same one pictured in my first post. He just sat there while I took photos.

Carolina chickadee. I love this photo!! I didn't even know it was flying until after I took the photo. I love chickadees.

Northern Mockingbird. This is the state bird of Mississippi, Tennessee, Arkansas, and Texas. We have one that sits at the top of a certain tree and sings. I think it's the one in this photo.

White-breasted Nuthatch. These birds are so fun to watch. They're fairly common at our feeders.

Sorry, I had to post this. Whole nest of Great Blue Herons!!!! This wasn't in our yard; (I wish it was!) it was in Lichterman Nature Center. I was sooo excited!! This was taken in June. We do sometimes see herons flying over our yard, though.

These are only a tiny fraction of the birds in our yard. That's why I titled this "SOME of our Birds".
