I am awakened most mornings to the loud song of the Eastern Towhee ("drink your tea"), or the very loud Tufted Titmouse (peter, peter, peter). Our house is in the woods, so we have lots of birds. Living in moderate North Carolina (climate not politics), we have lots of songbirds that live with us year-round. But they are never more fun than in spring when they are busy mating and nesting. And activity is at peak right now.
We have at least three pairs of Down Woodpeckers
And several pairs of cardinals
Although we have fresh water all the time, this goldfinch prefers to drink from a tree cavity that holds rainwater.
We have many, many American Goldfinches.
They are perhaps our most common birds.
The cardinals eat early and late
They do not winter here, but we welcome Purple Finches every spring and summer.
We have two nesting pairs every year.
The different variety of birds here would fill several posts. We are lacking Bluebirds near our house. But we can stroll on the golf course or near the lake and see plenty of them along with the usual waterfowl.
We are blessed indeed. Not only do we have these wonderful resident birds, we are treated to the grandeur of the spring migration.
