Deep Dive: Birds of the Sanctuary

News: I've just spotted a Rose-Breasted Grosbeak, my first new bird sighting in years. Note that I'm neither an ornithologist nor a bird photographer; I'm merely enthusiastic about all forms of life on my property. Hover for the name, and click for enlargements, more images, and some information about the birds.

In a nearby field I saw a Bald Eagle (above left); all I was able to manage was a crappy cellphone shot. BTW, my bird book of choice is the Peterson Field Guide to Birds, sixth edition.

In addition, I've heard the following:

  • American Crow
  • Great-Horned Owl
  • Hermit Thrush
  • Ovenbird
  • Seagull
