Visitors to Our Habitat
This winter we added several bird feeders to the habitat and were rewarded with a great variety of birds. Our sightings include:
(state bird of Virginia)
Dark-eyed Junco Red-Winged Blackbird American Robin Pine Siskin Tree Swallow (nesting) House Finch Eastern Bluebird Chipping Sparrow American Goldfinch Brown-headed CowbirdIn 2009, we also added a Bluebird box to the courtyard. Although Bluebirds did come and look at our nest box, it was a pair of Tree Swallows that chose to move in. We were delighted in the opportunity to closely observe these birds and their young. We have two movies about them.
These movies will play in Windows Media Player. This is standard on most Windows PCs. If you use a Mac, you can download WMP for your Mac.
