Backyard birds, December 16

by Brent Eades

This week I’ve had the usual species for the time of year, although with many more House Finches than is typical for mid-December: 30+ most days.

I’ve also had:

  • American Tree Sparrows
  • Dark-Eyed Juncos
  • White-Breasted Nuthatch
  • Downy Woodpecker
  • Blue Jays
  • Goldfinches
  • Mourning Doves
  • Northern Cardinals
