The rest of the birds I've seen here are all actually going to stay here all winter. Here they are.
Ut as Blue Jays
House Sparrows - the little flock has grown to about sixty.ir young.
Goldfinch - just a few individuals but they are brilliant yellow.
Cardinals - furtive at this time of year, but we've seen a few.
Crows - one or two soaring past the window.
Mourning Doves - a pair that sat in the spruce tree one day.
Blue Jay -two or three dashing about as Blue Jays do.
You may note that there are no Chickadees or woodpeckers on the list. They are still dispersed in the forest raising their young. Certainly it makes a big difference to have some live creatures around outside. Adds some iterest to our walks.
