I've taken my Wingscapes BirdCam mobile for this series of bird photos. I've taken it to my parents place just a few miles west from where I live. Even though we live within a few miles of each other the variety of birds are somewhat different. They live on a wooded lot and their feeders attract a different variety of woodland birds that I don't get on my open lot.
So lets see what BirdCam found...
First on the list is the ever so common Northern Cardinal.
Look closely at this next one and you will see two male cardinals fighting. This is the time of year that the males start becoming territorial.
The male cardinal below wants to get a close-up.
Next on the list is the white-throated sparrow. Although its breeding range barely extends outside of Canada, it is common throughout the middle to eastern United States in winter.
Notice how well they blend in with the ground below...
Next is one of my favorite sparrows - the fox sparrow.
The fox sparrow is another winter visitor. Their neat to watch under the bird feeders. They scratch the ground using both feet at the same time, also referred to as "double-scratching". I've noticed that they are very shy about coming out to the feeders compared to other types of sparrows.
Last but not least is the song sparrow.
Song sparrows are very common throughout the US. They live up to their name in being persistent singers during the breeding season.
Before concluding, I learned that some birds just couldn't take not being included; so an agreement was made that I will include them in this post if they continue to provide me with fresh eggs. After all, they are birds aren't they?
...there, I hope you chickens are happy!!
