There seem to be way more birds in our yard than in previous years. It may just be that we are noticing them more because Elliot points them out to us, but I really don’t remember there ever being this many.
I’m not a bird fan — I’m actually scared of them — but there are these small grey ones that have beautiful red heads, and I’m actually going to do some research to see if I can figure out what they are. They are quite pretty.
There are also lots of little all-grey ones (swallows? starlings?) that take dust baths in our back yard, and then the usual crows and seagulls. And this morning I happened to be looking out our front window when two bald eagles flew right in front of it, followed by a bunch of seagulls chasing them.
