The Yardbirds (not featuring Eric Clapton)

December 4, 2007

When I moved into the condo I share with the woman who is now my wife, one of the first things I did was set up a small feeding station outside our modest patio. I live in a townhouse in a subdivision in Chapel Hill, and although I share walls on both sides with other folks, my feeding station has been pretty active, certainly beyond my expectations when I set it up. My yard list has climbed in a couple years up to around 50 species, including some interesting birds like Yellow-billed Cuckoo and Osprey. The usual visitors are more pedestrian, but I thought those out in cyberspace might dig some photos of some of my regulars. So here you are…

    Nice butterbutt. It’s nice to see them in close like that.

    It sounds like we have similar living and feeding arrangements. I’m lucky that my condo backs to regular house with several trees. Our yard list is close to the 50 species barrier. The most interesting birds would be a singing Swainson’s Thrush and Fox Sparrow.

    Yepp, very nice butterbutt!
    One of these days I’ll have a small garden with a few birds around, maybe Rancho Naturalista in Costa Rica or something like that. Until then, I’ll just have to watch the gulls and House Sparrows from my flat.
