Song Sparrow

The coloring of this sparrow varies greatly across North America, so learning it's song is also a good way to tell it apart from others.

American Robin

You can throw a stone in the suburbs and hit a robin (but please don't!) however I've only seen ONE the entire time I've been out here at Middle Way. Weird!

White-breasted Nuthatch

You often see this bird clinging to the side of a tree truck, sometimes upside down. The curved shape of it's cute little body it like a swoopy parabola.
