Not long after I got here, I put up a hummingbird feeder and a suet feeder. I immediately had hummers, chickadees and Titmice. Before long I had seen Red Headed Woodpeckers, Red Bellied Woodpeckers, Downey Woodpeckers, and a variety of other species.
The next time I went to my storage unit, I dug out my bird books from my dozens of field guides. Then I started boneing up on the ones I was seeing.
Of course,I prowled the internet looking for information on local birds.
