Since 2020, I’ve been cataloguing all the species of birds I’ve seen in my Maine yard. Maybe this is a form of collecting or saving all the birds that visit, a Backyard Ark of Birds. Or maybe I just really like birds.
Get to know more abut these birds below. I’ll introduce a new bird here regularly.
- The Seasonals
- The Irregulars
- The Rare Visitors
To Learn More: I’m an amateur backyard birder. So much so, I don’t even call myself a birder. Want to learn more about birds? I recommend The Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s All About Birds, its Merlin ID app, and (if you want to go deep) Birds of the World. Also check out Audubon, the American Bird Conservancy, and any number of field guides.
