Birds!

We don’t have the best yard for attracting birds, but if you put out food, some will inevitably find it.  Luckily we have a set of windows right behind our couch, so I put our feeders right outside those windows and get to see all the different kinds of birds that visit our humble yard. I thought I would share some pictures of the kinds I have identified at our feeder.  I haven’t gotten any good pictures yet of my own birds so I will use pictures from the Fernbank site. Not great, but gives you an idea. (I’ll put up my own if I can ever get some good shots)
