Bird Roll Call: March 14, 2018

  • American goldfinch
  • American robin
  • Black-capped chickadee
  • Blue jay
  • Common grackle
  • Dark-eyed junco
  • Downy woodpecker
  • European starling
  • House finch
  • House sparrow
  • Mourning dove
  • Northern cardinal
  • Northern flicker
  • Red-bellied woodpecker
  • Red-winged blackbird (male and female)
  • White-throated sparrow

I was happy to see that the female red-winged blackbird had once again joined the male in the yard. Also, my homemade suet is a hit with the birds. The Carolina wren is especially fond of it. He visited the suet feeder several times over the course of the day.
