Our new backyard is proving to be a great haven for birds. In just four weeks of living here I've made a yard-list of 27 different species that have visited so far, the most recent being a Northern Shrike that caught a House Sparrow and devoured it in the confines of our Hawthorn Tree!
Here are a couple of new photos :
Golden-crowned Kinglet - We had 2 of these speedy little guys show up recently:
Red-breasted Nuthatch - These little birds are becoming very tame now :
Purple Finch - We had a female show up, then this beautiful male the following day:
Common Yellowthroat - This handsome male showed up at our old yard right before we moved :
My 2 calendars are ready from the printers now and have turned out very nice ( if I dare to say so myself )
Anyone wanting a copy (or copies) of either, can email me for a preview of every page.
