Great job everyone and thanks for taking a shot at it!

Northern Cardinal
White-breasted Nuthatch
American Goldfinch
Black-capped Chickadee

Here is my guess! I sat here trying to recall from memory how much it felt they weighed when I was banding last summer. We'll see how good my weight memory is. :P

Mourning Dove (heaviest)
Blue Jay
Northern Cardinal
Downy Woodpecker
White-breasted Nuthatch
American Goldfinch
Black-capped Chickadee (lightest and oh-so tiny)


Mourning Dove, Blue Jay, Cardinal, Downy, Nutty, Goldfinch and Chick-a Dee. Great challenge! I had better have it right, or I am apt to be in trouble with the boss!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
