Turdus migratorius (American Robin) This guy is a friend of mine and we have known each other for a couple of years now. He creates a nest in my Catalpa Tree each spring and I always make worm hunting a breeze for him. I recognize him by the fact that he has one back feather always out of place, not seen here. We are buddies really, he has no fear of me at all.
Cardinalis cardinalis (Northern Cardinal) has a nest near by and he is a real talker. I love their song and it is so distinctive. These are my favourite song bird for show. If you never seen one it is hard to believe how red their red really is. The male does lose some of that brilliance after the mating but is still amazing.
Passer domesticus (House Sparrow) These guys are so common here that it is hard to remember that they are a transplant from England. They are a wonderful social bird that really carries on. O man can these guys fight and carry on. I understand that they have been so successful that they have displaced many native birds.
