I've probably said it before, but my favourite thing about this townhouse is the sliding glass door in the living room. Not only do the cats love a window at ground level, but it gives me a wonderful view of the backyard from the couch, where I'm usually perched, knitting away.
It's been a year and half since we moved in, but I haven't grown tired of spending my weekend mornings with my needles clicking away, watching the wildlife just on the other side of the glass.
Naturally, there are A LOT of Sparrows. I call them the Sparrow mafia and there can be up to 40 of them at a time. I love how they all line up on the fence above the feeder though.
We have a couple pairs of Mourning Doves too.
The Cardinals are a lot more timid. We have two mated pairs of them as well, but the are hard to get a picture of. As soon as they see me at the door, they fly up into the trees.(I really need to get a telephoto lens)
And the other thing I love seeing is the little Red-Headed Finches (he was hanging out with Lady Cardinal as you can see...)
I've heard the Blue Jays too, but they haven't come down since I stopped putting out peanuts. I got a little suet feeder in the hopes of enticing them back - but it's hard to catch them at it. There were two of them at it the other night
I'll put peanuts out again in the winter, but I'm a little mad at the squirrels right now...
