I was stuck around the house all day, so nothing exciting!

American kestrel, Gray catbird, Ovenbird, Veery, American robin, Song sparrow, Downy woodpecker, Rose-breasted grosbeak, Red-winged blackbird, American goldfinch, Common grackle, Mourning dove, Black-capped chickadee, Tufted titmouse, Eastern phoebe, White-breasted nuthatch, Hairy woodpecker, Wood thrush, Killdeer, Blue jay, Red-bellied woodpecker, Common yellowthroat, American crow, House sparrow, Chimney swift, Barn swallow, Green heron, Yellow-bellied sapsucker, Cedar waxwing.

29 species. Lots of babies today– all the woodpeckers except the Red-bellies brought their young to the suet feeder. I played Confuse-A-Bird, moving the suet cage to a different less squirrel-accessible branch, and for most of the morning the woodpeckers kept landing on the old branch and searching, hanging upside down and hopping to and fro. Finally one Downy figured it out and then it was a flying stampede.
