The Cedar Waxing is a species of bird that is very persistent. Always finding their mates, harvesting seed, and flying from tree to tree... the end of summer is their queue!
A pair of Double Crested Cormorants. Female is to the right, and male to the left.
The Chipping Sparrow is known as a residential species of bird here in Maine. One that I both enjoy seeing and love.
During the winter, they tend to be a bit less active. That being said, in the summer, they're often chipping away.
The bird with the rhythmic singing and elegant yellow pattern, the Golden Finch is a fun bird to see around.
The Phoebe is a bird that likes to build their nest close to houses and or, built against houses. You'll often see them breed three times in a single summer, and always bringing food to their young.
With a nest in the cattails growing by the perimeter of the pond, the female Red Winged Blackbird searches seed out for their young. The male will hang close by to make sure nobody's near her or the nest.
Ah, the Catbird. A bird that's always singing cheerfully. If they're boisterous when you walk by, perhaps they have been nesting near.
A silly little bird that hops about while searching for worms- we all except this little fella as a sure sign of spring's welcoming.
Look carefully the next time you're walking in the wood. You'll be sure to see a few of these. ;)
Maine state bird, the Black Capped Chickadee. One of God's many beautiful gifts.
Beautiful little birds- very photogenic.
The bird opposite of robin... Dark Eyed Juncos bounce freely about in the newly fallen snow, noting that winter is certainly on its way.
A Red Breasted Nuthatch holding onto a sunflower seed and climbing down a tree.
A singular female Double Crested Cormorant.
Silhouette of a Cedar Waxing couple. Perched on a house roof as the sun vanishes, they had just found one another.
The Red Breasted Nuthatch is more of a timid, yet graceful, tree climber. They're particularly one of my favorites.
The Mallards are graceful birds that tend to enjoy swimming or hunting for fish in ponds and swamps. They're summer residents that are always welcomed here! Especially since they've been known as a sign of spring.
A very nice resident find nesting on your property, the Eastern Phoebe can be a rather simple bird to befriend.
Skippy is a young Eastern Phoebe that left the nest just when it was raining outside. We brought him in, he dried off, and then he returned to his Mother.
First time having one visit the yard was in early March of 2020.
Saw this little guy visiting the feeder- knew he was a Black Capped Chickadee, but of his own handsome differences.
