Random bird watching observations …

A couple of weekends’ worth of observations. Looks like for the most part there are plenty of mourning doves (they come every day) 2-3 pairs of cardinals (they are at the feeders every day), house finches and of course house sparrows. Nothing too uncommon.
Most of these observations are just quick glances out of the kitchen windows. If birds are at the feeders, I jot the names down and maybe grab some binoculars. When it is not so cold I like sitting on the deck with a cold one (and binoculars), and maybe with some meat on the grill.

While I was out and about, I noticed the following, all typical, but figured since I was putting pen to paper (so to speak) I would capture these as well.
House Sparrow ~15-20 – at a local Wal-Mart parking lot
Mockingbird – at the local library
Rock pigeon (2 flocks: 7-10 and 10-15) – at two different major intersections

These observations were only for a 5-10 minute span around 11:30AM.
