Birds of the Yard
In the 15 or so years I've been watching the yard, I've kept a pretty
good record of the birds that have passed through or taken up
residence here. They seem to me to be an indicator of the quality of
the habitat, here on my fifth of an acre in suburbia, less than a mile
from the DC line. Here's the list:
Black-crowned night heron
Great crested flycatcher
Black-throated blue warbler
That's 57 species, for anyone who's counting.
