Big bird update

The birds are onto my feeders big time now.

Here's the view from my big chair. I can see all the action.

In the background is the swamp. It's the floodplain of Deep Run, and it's part of Patapsco Valley State Park. In this picture it's flooded.

Instead of making a blog entry every day to describe the birds I see, I decided to make a Google spreadsheet with the daily sighting. You can click the "Bird sightings" link on the left side of the page to see it.

Debra my wife does not appreciate birds much. She said she would like it if I printed out some pictures of what birds came to the feeder so she could learn which ones are which. Instead I made a Google word document with pictures from the Cornell Ornithology Lab, and links to their species description page. To see that document, click the link to "Debra's Bird Guide".

Cool, your own swamp.
Talk about biomass and diverisity, nothing better than a good old wetland.
