New Yard Birds
Saturday I spent an hour on the back porch and counted 21 bird species--not bad for an early spring count in an urban setting. Highlights were five Cedar Waxwings, which I hadn't seen since the holly tree next door was fruiting in December, and a Northern Flicker calling from the top of the baseball field lights in the park behind the house. Was hoping for some raptors to fly through, but no dice.
