I sometimes use the blog as a searchable record of stuff that's not really important, but sort of important. Today, I'm doing that with yard birds I've been seeing this winter.
Dark-eyed Juncoes (some years, they don't stay, but this year they're staying)
Goldfinch (the one this morning looked like he might be brightening up!)
Common Redpoll (once this winter)
Horned Owl (on a neighbor's tree)
House Finch (seeing more and more)
Mourning Dove (a couple, once this winter; they're fairly regular in sumer here)
Most of these are year-round residents, though the Juncoes usually leave in spring, and the Redpolls I see rarely, and it seems only in deep winter.
I'm ready for spring!
