Backyard birds include the most common birds you’re like to see, such as the house sparrow, but if you look carefully, you might add significantly to that list throughout the year and over time. Obviously, those who live near wooded, marshy or waterfront will see the most. Keep a list and keep your eyes open when you’re out gardening or other activities. And look straight up every so often – maybe you’ll see that flyover of a bald eagle or a V formation of geese to add to your list. Can’t identify what you’re seeing? Best solution is to go online and search and don’t forget your local MOS chapter.
