This morning I was awakened to the screech of a red-tailed hawk. I have two pet ducks so I ran out to check on them. The ducks were fine and two blue-jays were screaming at the hawk. My morning backyard visitors were:


Tufted titmouse: 2, sometimes 3

Downy woodpecker: one at a time...male and then female

Juncos: many

Cardinals: 6

Chickadee: 2

House Sparrows: many

White-breasted nuthatch: 1
