Backyard Visitors

We have bird feeders in both our front yard and in our back yard. It's amazing to me that we see different birds and creatures depending which way we look. In our front yard we see lots of common grey squirrels - but they never venture into our open backyard. We think it is because of the hawks and owls. The Sherman Fox Squirrels, however, prefer the back yard to the front yard.

The Florida (or Sherman) Fox Squirrels have very long tails - except this one. We've also had a baby Fox Squirrel visit - but I haven't gotten a picture of him yet.

The American Goldfinches are getting yellower by the day. Migration has begun and we are seeing them in lesser numbers than last week. They like the feeders in the back as do the Pine Warblers. We are more likely to see Carolina Chickadees and Tufted Titmice in the front yard.
