This little wren loves living here, and has built nests every year in a box full of tools, or in between two flower pots next to a door, in between my broom and walking sticks, you name it.

It bounces and hops around the patio bobbing it’s body up and down making a “chip chip chip” call, exploring the furniture, and whatever else is sitting around outside. It’s pretty loud for a small bird (which is probably why I often notice when it’s around calling for attention) but the bobbing up and down cuteness factor really can’t be beat.

Red-winged Blackbird

The easiest way for me to "spot" these birds, is to actually listen for their song, and then it's pretty clear: Red-winged Blackbird.

Great Horned Owl

Crows harass hawks, but they specifically will harass Great Horned Owls - for hours on end, as this owl is a crow's most dangerous predator.

Wood Thrush

Probably my favorite bird!!! At least my favorite bird song. You don't see these very often, they live deep in the forest, but you hear their soft lovely flute-like trill call and it is just divine.
