Backyard birds: February 1 2014

by Brent Eades

I must admit I haven’t been paying my yard enough attention lately what with the unprecedented irruption of Snowy Owls, and quite a few interesting hawks in the area as well.

My backyard list for the last couple of weeks remains mostly unchanged from my last post:

  • American Tree Sparrows
  • American Goldfinches
  • Dark-Eyed Juncos
  • Mourning Doves
  • House Finches
  • Cardinals
  • Black-Capped Chickadees
  • White-Breasted Nuthatches
  • Blue Jays
  • American Crows

Several reports of Purple Finches, Cedar Waxwings and Snow Buntings in the area, but I haven’t seen them in my yard.
