lucky you ... here i see just mostly sparrows and a couple or so of shrikes. :)

Agring Friday, May 25th, 2007

Great list. It's good that know their names!

The Rock Chick Friday, May 25th, 2007

You'd think being a rock "chick", I'd have some insight as to being able to distinguish one bird from another. Nope :)

I do like to watch them, though. Sometimes on the wires by the power plant there are hundreds of birds perched. At the same instant, they all just take off and fly away, too. It amazes me how that happens and how they are communicating with each other.

Happy TT! Jessica The Rock Chick

Love the list. I only walk from upstairs to downstairs for work in the morning so I pass very fews on my journey.

Thanks for visiting my TT

Qtpies7 Friday, May 25th, 2007

Wow, I might actually be able to identify 4-5 of those birds!
Great TT idea!

Sword Girl Thursday, May 24th, 2007

I love that the sounds are included! The common gull is a familiar sound around here too. :)

Karina Thursday, May 24th, 2007

Hey, thanks, just Tuesday a friend and I were trying to figure out whether a particular kind of bird we see every day on our walks was a blackbird...thanks to your list, now I know it is!

I usually only see Cardinals, BlueBirds and Pigeons around here...oh, and sea gulls and ducks...

Titania Starlight Thursday, May 24th, 2007

Wow! That is quite a variety. I saw a cardinal, two doves, a red-tailed hawk, three crows, and a Jenny Wren. :o)

I really love birds.

Barbara Thursday, May 24th, 2007

I'm a birdwatcher but never heard of the Blue Tit. Had to go look it up - pretty bird!

Is this a UK bird only?

My Thursday Thirteen is finally up.

Jerry Thursday, May 24th, 2007

I occasionally see a mallard and some gulls, not sure about the rest. Lately I've been watching a gaggle of gosling's grow up on our lake

chelsea Thursday, May 24th, 2007

I like watching birds as well. The common ones that I see are white breasted nuthatch, tufted titmouse, cardinals, mallards, downy woodpeckers and starlings.

Ctina Thursday, May 24th, 2007

Interesting list!

This Eclectic Life Thursday, May 24th, 2007

LOL. This was great. I just went to the sites and played the songs. I now have five cats clustered at the speakers. How am I supposed to work? Thanks for sharing those links. I'll use them again to pester these cats.

Tilly Greene Thursday, May 24th, 2007

Wow, so many! Ummm, proud of myself for reading the list through because I'm terrified of birds!

Rhian / Crowwoman Thursday, May 24th, 2007

Crows are goodluck so make sure wave and talk politely to them. For real.

Fence Thursday, May 24th, 2007

I see a few of those on my walk to work to. I always love watching the flocks of migrating geese, but they aren't around yet.

Happy T13

Emma Wayne Porter Thursday, May 24th, 2007

My poor cats... the bluejays are back and scolding them something awful. And I really must have a talk with the woodpecker who's mistaken the metal thing sticking out of our chimney for a particularly stubborn piece of wood.

Sounds like a machine gun -- Lovely to wake up to lol.

Have a good day!

Judy Callarman Thursday, May 24th, 2007

This is great. I love the little blue tit.

DK Thursday, May 24th, 2007

Thanks for the list! We don't have the wagtail or the magpie here, but we do have some other gorgeous birds like indigo buntings and a few bald eagles in winter. Happy TTing and have a great weekend.

Great list....I have a pair of owls that I like to watch! Thanks for sharing!!! Happy TT!

Janet Thursday, May 24th, 2007

that's alot of birds!

Sue Thursday, May 24th, 2007

I like spotting Robins... reminds me that Spring is definitely here .. :) Great list idea!

Thomma Lyn Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Oh, I love birds! We have cardinals, robins, hummingbirds, sparrows, blue jays, black birds... because we live in the country, we see all kinds of creatures, birds, rabbits, squirrels, possums, raccoons, sometimes even a deer!

Happy TT, and thanks for visiting my blog!

Candy Minx Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Thats a pretty big variety. I can hear Cardinals, often see Robins...but we have tons of rabbits. I'm not kidding, downtown Chicago has all these wild bunnies. I was taking pics last night.

Fun list.

Here is mine:

pussreboots Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Nice list. We have most of those birds here which I can watch from my window at work.
