Backyard birding today April 23, 2010

Today was one of those beautiful days you just sit outside and enjoy the sound of the birds.
In my backyard today was a cooper hawk, female adult, red tail hawk (flew by so fast I couldn't see much), 2 hermit thrush, many cardinals including a pair where the male was feeding the female, white throated sparrow, house sparrow, pair of downy woodpecker, male hairy woodpecker, male flicker, doves, robins, goldfinch.

This is the first time I have had the hermit thrush in the yard. The pair of downy woodpeckers were calling to each other and working hard on the nest.

It is a great time for birding.
