the birds

And here's where we start the overlapping thing. But, lists of the birds etc. I see in my backyard naturally belong here, so let's have one, shall we?
  • starlings, house sparrows
  • house finches
  • goldfinches
  • robins
  • crows, grackles
  • juncos
  • chickadees
  • cardinals (nesting pair hanging out next door)
  • blue jays
  • mourning doves
  • sparrows: chipping, song, and white-throated
  • flickers
  • brown thrasher
  • warblers: black-throated green and pine
and new this morning, a female rose-breasted grosbeak was squeaking away. Every time I go out there and see or hear a new bird, I get this stupid grin on my face. I love it.
