Just a little introduction about me, I live in central Maryland not too far from the Pennsylvania line with my hubby, son and a Golden Retriever. Some fellow contributors may already know me thru my blog but, I see a few new names. The new reason for my introduction.
I work full time and love to go bird watching on the weekends and on my vacations. I am animal lover and I enjoy nature and the great outdoors. I have been birding for years now and I am a member of the local bird club. I have been blogging just for fun for 5years I started blogging on July 13, 2013. I admit I am a total amateur at photography, I just like taking photos of all the birds that I see and to record my lifers.
My spark bird was the Rose-breasted Grosbeak. After seeing this bird in my yard and at my feeders for the first time I knew I loved birds. I became addicted to seeing more and attracting new birds to my yard. We live in a rural area not too far from a reservoir. The reservoir and the forest attract many birds that I am happy to see visit and pass thru our yard. Most of the birds I see in our yard are the woodland birds. Some migrating birds passing thru my area and yard. Living 23 years in our house, we have planted many pine trees, plants, bushes and flowers. We also have a small pond to attract the birds and wildlife.
The reservoir a short walk from our house. It is like having a park right outside our door.
Above are some of the birds that I see in my yard and around the watershed area of the reservoir.The Barred Owl is often heard and seen during my walks along the fireroads in the nearby woods.
The Scarlet Tanager, Ovenbirds, Northern Parulas are just some of the breeders in the woods next to my house.
The Great-Crested Flycatcher was seen in my yard and I have seen it taking some of my dogs hair I leave out for its nest.
The Northern Parula another breeder in the woods near my house. This Northern Parula was seen in my yard.
I look forward to doing a post for Birding is Fun once a month and I hope you like my birds as much as I do. Thanks and happy birding.
I have been following Birding is Fun and some of the contributors blogs for some time now. I feel honored to be included with such a great group of birders and photographers.
