Fall bounty

Gathering bittersweet this morning, I found some nice late fall birds....

Blue Jay  4
American Crow  6
Black-capped Chickadee  3
Eastern Bluebird  3     m      Like christmas ornaments on trees at the triangle in front of lower garden.
American Robin  4
European Starling  5
Nashville Warbler  1     Bright individual, well seen, in weeds at back of upper garden.
Eastern Towhee  1     Heard and well seen male, at entrance to soccer field.
American Tree Sparrow  6
Song Sparrow  6
White-throated Sparrow  8
Dark-eyed Junco  10
Northern Cardinal  4

  1. That is great to know there are some bluebirds again.

    1. Most years small groups stop by in the fall. They're not local breeders - we have to wait for spring for that!

  2. Haynes,

    I am so glad someone finally saw the bluebirds - even if they are just passing through. It seems sort of late compared to previous years, but glad they were seen!

    Very excited about the towhee. I've only seen one so far and it was when I first started birding.
