Barbara, that's quite a list of faithful birds. You're lucky...I'm sure you know that!
Rohrerbot, I'm glad you got subscribed. Thank you!
Carol, another great old faithful list! Thanks for sharing.


I have those that you listed as well as Tufted Titmouse, Nuthatch, Cardinal, House Finch, Purple Finch, Carolina Wren, and an occasional Red-bellied Woodpecker...


I have finally figured out how to add you to my reader:) I love your blog and finally I'll be able to get the updates:)


Thanks for asking Nancy - my old faithfuls up here in the "wilds" of Central Ontario include black-capped chickadees, white-crowned and House sparrows, American Tree sparrows, Blue Jays, dark eyed juncos, white breasted nuthatches, hairy, downy and red-bellied woodpeckers, gold- house- and purple finches, white-throated sparrows sometimes, mourning doves always, and the odd Cooper's Hawk as well as a sharp-shinned who patrols regularly. I'm so blessed with all these visitors. I'm sure there are some I've forgotten to mention.

Ellen, usually Red-breasted Nuthatches are usuals but this summer/fall has been different. The White-breasteds are occasional.
Thanks for sharing your list!

On Sunday 6 November I started to count the different species in my garder. In just 30 minutes 9 different species came for their mornnig treat. Roodepoort Gauteng South Africa.


No nuthatches, Nancy?

The "old faithful" in my yard would have to include Tufted Titmouse, Black-capped Chickadee, White-breasted Nuthatch, Downy & Hairy Woodpeckers, and Mourning Dove.

As I looked outside to make sure I didn't forget anyone, I spotted a Red-breasted Nuthatch. They don't show up regularly, so I was happy to see one!

  • 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.
