I'm a bit of an urban bird nerd.
Where I am now is an asphalt wasteland, and I typically only attract house sparrows to the feeder. I'll get robins in the yard when there are worms to be had, juncos (right now), mourning doves pop in, and I'll hear the odd blue jay and cardinal. There are dozens of seagulls in the middle of the parking lot at the garbage dumpsters. The juncos and sparrows seem to love my little mulberry tree. I'm not sure what they're picking at, or maybe they just like the shelter.
I need to move the feeder because I'm tired of weeding millet out of the veggie patch!
At my old house in another city, even though I was downtown, I was on a block with old trees so I saw more birds. I got downy woodpeckers at that feeder, and I used to like hanging out in the yard with a bag of unsalted in-shell peanuts and toss some to blue jays and cardinals. The jays and cards nested nearby and the fledglings hung out in my yard:
I had some really good shots of the cardinal fledgling and I think I lost them a few computers ago.
I can't believe I didn't upload them somewhere, not even the birding forum I was on. PSA: back up your valuable files!
Most interesting bird I saw was a red-shouldered hawk, and it was funny, the morning I saw it, I had noticed that the yard was silent and devoid of (other) birds. I also got a hummingbird once, checking out my bright purple wave petunias. It scared the crap out of me because it was right beside me, and my instant reaction was that I thought it was a huge insect!! Never saw it again.
My parents lived way out in the woods North of Toronto, and they had all kinds of interesting birds - pileated woodpeckers, owls, and hummers in addition to the usual. There was a woodpecker that really enjoyed drumming on their satellite dish all day.
Fave bird I saw while traveling: egrets in Florida, I think just because I was surprised to see them. I was walking from Bright House Field in Clearwater back to my hotel, and there was sort of a swampy area, and there they were. I couldn't whip out my camera fast enough. Haha, I was all Canadian tourist, "OMG, the seagulls in America are HUGE!"
