Our Backyard Bird List
These are bird species that we have seen at least once in the backyard (or close). Rare doesn't necessarily mean rare for the area. It just means we see them very infrequently.
We have been trying our hand at photographing birds. Results have been mixed, but if there is a link associated with a species, follow it to see our attempts.
