Backyard birds, December 31

by Brent Eades

I’ve had the usual mix of early-winter species in my yard for the past week, though with the House Finches continuing to linger in numbers not typical for late December. The list:

  • American Tree Sparrows
  • Black-Capped Chickadees
  • Dark-Eyed Juncos
  • House Finches
  • Downy Woodpeckers
  • Blue Jays
  • Goldfinches
  • Mourning Doves
  • Northern Cardinals
  • American Crows
  • Common Ravens
