Backyard Birding Downy Woodpecker
We enjoyed the backyard birding workshop at Evergreen Don Valley Brickworks and thought that we could spend a little time in our own backyard observing different bird species to submit to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology for their Great BackYard Bird Count and although there were not as many birds as there normally are, we did come across a nice Downy Woodpecker, 2 Northern Cardinals, 9 Song Sparrows, 2 Mourning Doves and a Dark Eyed Junko.
Although I indicated that I was reporting activity at my feeders, I am NOT counting the two squirrels that insisted on hanging upside down outstretched to get a some of the suet cake in this feeder.
