Bird Diversity

A few of the backyard birds spotted today as I sat on my patio.

Sitting in my backyard, and with some help from an ornithology app, I have identified 22 different bird species in about 20 minutes.

I once read of a study that showed that people are happier if they are regularly exposed to at least fourteen different species. I’ve got more than that here today, and all of them at the same time. Today’s 22 bird species:

  • White-Breasted Nuthatch
  • Northern Cardinal
  • Blue Jay
  • Carolina Wren
  • House Finch
  • House Sparrow
  • White-throated Sparrow
  • Song Sparrow
  • Mourning Dove
  • American Crow
  • American Robin
  • Tufted Titmouse
  • Downy Woodpecker
  • Hairy Woodpecker
  • Red-Bellied Woodpecker
  • European Starling
  • Dark-Eyed Juno
  • Carolina Chickadee
  • Red-Shouldered Hawk
  • Eastern Towhee
  • Common Grackle
  • Pine Siskin
