Carolina Wrens

Red Bellied Woodpeckers
American Crows
American Goldfinches
Pine Siskins (first time I've ever seen them here)
Ruby-Crowned Kinglet, on the suet feeder

Janie, congrats on seeing all those bald eagles. ragdall, thank you very much for the photo link. Nice pics!

I enjoy this bird count. I spend a lot of my day, actually, peeking out at the feeders to see if there's anything either newsworthy (like the pine siskins) or just photoworthy. Sadly, the photos would turn out a whole lot better if I'd clean the thrown suet off the windows! Our feeders are all very close to the house which probably puts off a few birds but we still enjoy a nice variety. Janie I especially envy you the bluebirds. We get all kinds of migrants that like wooded yards, but I've never seen a bluebird here.
