In Louisiana we spent most of our time in New Orleans but we managed to bird the City Park and get out to the Beau Sauvage Nature Reserve for a couple of days. A trip on the Pearl River and Honey Pot Swamp proved useless for birding and alligatoring but good for snaking and racooning.
This first post is of birds that I managed to photograph around the house in Meridian.
|Carolina Chickadee in the back garden.|
|Chipping Sparrow. These were all over the feeders in the garden.|
|Dark-eyed or Slate-coloured Junco. Very common around the house.|
|House Finch. A pair were frequently at the feeders|
|Male Northern Cardinal. Another frequent visitor to the garden feeders.|
|Red-bellied Woodpecker atop a tree out the back of the house.|
|Dodgy picture of a Sharp-shinned Hawk.|
|Northern Mockingbird. All over the shop as we say!|
