1. A Northern flicker-I wasn't sure what this was until I looked it up. Looks much like a woodpecker. It does come from the woodpecker family. The one that visited our suet feeder had a pretty white head but otherwise looked just like this one.
2. Plenty of crows. These are the ones that bug me. But they need to eat too, I guess. They can empty a feeder in no time at all. And aren't really that fun to watch.
3. A Robin....these don't usually eat at the feeders because they like worms. But we have seen them out there hopping around and pecking in the ground to get the first bites of those tender, fresh spring worms.
4. I love the cardinals. We have seen both the females and the males. The males are such a bright red and without many leaves on the bushes yet they really stand out.
5. The blue jays are a nuisance bird as well. But we have plenty of them and we have come to love their visits as well.
6. Lots of finches in our yard....yellow, blue, brown
7. And we have a few variety of woodpeckers. The big red-headed ones and the smaller 'downy' peckers. They love the suet best.
8. We have a couple of variety of doves and so far this year I have spotted both the mourning doves and the Eurasian doves in our backyard.
9. We have a flock (and I think the whole dang flock comes too) of starlings. They are kind of like the crows. But they won't stay all summer so soon there will be feed for the other birds. They are so hungry.
10. Overhead most days I can spot a few ducks flying. We live close to several ponds and lakes so they are always flying over our house. Haven't ever had any stop by to dine.
11. We do have a huge flock of wild turkeys. And I have to admit they are our favorites. Right now the males are flirting and gathering their hens so we often see them with their tails all fluffed out and their heads bright blue. Quite a site to see.
I am linking up with Many Little Blessings List It Tuesday. Won't you join us? (I'll have to wait until she puts up the link to link up...but I will be there.
