Birds in My Yard

Due to my travels and the general chaos in my life and work, I haven't been able to pay attention to the birds until recently. I have posted previously about the Pileated Woodpecker and Stellar's Jay.

We recently put up a bird feeder with four different types of bird food. It has wild bird seed mix, two different suet mixes and nectar for hummingbirds. In the past few days we have seen several different birds, but no hummingbirds.

One that we have seen is the:

Spotted Towhee 

From All About Birds, here is the Spotted Towhee.

Again, I did not take this picture myself but got it from Copyright Free Photos, Images & Artwork Headquarters.

More to come.
