The birds that turned up for the first time today were:
- Red-tailed Hawk
- Eurasian Collared-dove
- Mourning Dove
- Downy Woodpecker
- European Starling
- Cedar Waxwing
- Chipping Sparrow
- Brown-headed Cowbird
- House Finch
This brings my total for the weekend to twenty-nine species, but there are several that are still among the missing: Brown-headed Nuthatch, Eastern Bluebird, Orange-crowned Warbler, Purple Martin, and Northern Mockingbird just to name five. One more day - maybe some of them will show up tomorrow.
One of the two Rufous Hummingbirds wintering in my yard enjoyed the sun today.
The male Red-winged Blackbird from yesterday showed up again today and brought along his mate and several of his friends.
The Red-bellied Woodpecker didn't make an appearance yesterday but he was back today.
Best of all, the dapper little Cedar Waxwings came to visit.
I love watching these beautiful birds. They never fail to entertain me.
I wonder who will turn up to be counted tomorrow?
