Lazy weekend for these guys. The ground is not frozen yet so the birds still can find food without my help...they only occasionally visit the feeders so far. I'll be posting some more of my backyard birds this winter.
Abundant and widespread, the Mourning Dove is well known throughout most of North America. Sexes similar, but males slightly larger and slightly more colorful, with bluish crown and pink chest.
A bright red and brown-striped bird of the cities and suburbs, the House Finch comes readily to feeders. It also breeds in close association with people, and often chooses a hanging plant in which to put its nest.
Male red, female grayish brown with stripes.
The White-throated Sparrow sings its breeding song of "Oh Sweet Canada Canada Canada" across most of that country. Although its breeding range barely extends outside of Canada, it is common in fields and hedgerows throughout the eastern United States in winter. It is found in urban areas more frequently than most sparrows.
Sexes similar in plumage, males slightly larger.
