Thanks to Tim Carstens, we can now double check our backyard bird sightings.  Here are some of the most common in our area at this time of the year.

We will be adding as photos as the seasons change and soon we’ll move into more woodland birds.  Hope this will be a help to our beginning birders.

If you’d like us to include specific birds from our area, let me know in the comment section below.–sf
