A Field Guide to Birds of the "My Yard" Region
This robin has made a nest above my front door. Every day when I get home from work, the robin flies up and perches on the railing of my front porch until I go inside, probably to make sure I don't disturb the nest. Earlier in the spring some finches made a nest a few feet away, but they seem to be gone now.
I've been noticing how the birds use my garden. I don't have a bird feeder, but they eat some of the berries I grow. They use other plants, especially my Irish Moss, as nesting materials. Yesterday when I turned on the sprinkler, within minutes dozens of birds flew up to perch in the bushes and drink from the water drops on the leaves.
