Neighborhood Bird Guide

Do you see or hear birds in our neighborhood that you don’t recognize? If you want to find out what you are seeing and find out a bit about them, click here for the simple-to-use guide that covers the birds I’ve seen in our neighborhood over the years at our feeders, in the yard, on walks (or rolls in my case) and in the air.

There are seed eaters, insect eaters, road-kill eaters, and even hawks that specialize in catching birds in our area.

I look forward to additions from enthusiasts!
