My backyard is sometimes home to an amazing number of birds which come for the sunflower seeds, nyger, and suet.
There are chickadees, nuthatches, mourning doves and woodpeckers. I’d have to say the woodpeckers are my favorite. I am always tickled when they arrive. I often have hairy and downy woodpeckers, occasionally a flicker or a red-bellied woodpecker. They take to the suet feeders with abandon
The robins show up now and then along with the blue jays, starlings and goldfinches. House Sparrows are never in short supply, nor hopeful cats.
Add a few nutty squirrels and my city yard becomes a virtual menagerie most any time of year. If you enjoy or would like to see more birds in your yard, consider this story in Organic Gardening.
