Lots of Birds at our Back Porch

May 27th, 2008 Comments Off on Lots of Birds at our Back Porch

Mourning Doves occasionally come to our back porch, and House Sparrows discovered it a few days ago. But today was different. As me and my sister were getting her camera, then I froze at the sight of tons of birds on our porch. I froze that not only to get a better look but to not scare them away (House Sparrows are very touchy). I was blown away at the number of types and population. There were Mourning (1) and White-winged Doves (7), House Sparrows (?), and Brown-headed Cowbirds (2).

House Sparrows love our yard. They mostly like the seed. We saw enough Sparrows to make anybody sick of them. Once there were 10-20 Sparrows under our bird-feeder. Most of the time anywhere from 6-30 birds were around. But not one male. I think there were only juveniles and females (Maybe even no females). My dad took this picture of 7 birds in one branch.

Carolina Wren are small in size but big in voice. They are so loud. In case some of you do not know what these hyperactive birds look like, I included a picture. It was shot a few days ago.

The White-winged Dove

This bird is looks bigger than a Mourning Dove, but it’s not. Length is measured from beak to tail. The Mourning Dove is longer.

I took this picture some time ago. It was my desktop picture. This bird came to our back porch.
