Here’s an update on the birds we’ve seen here in Nova Scotia. I’m no ornithologist, but the Nova Scotia bird book we bought is pretty good.

We’ve had some new additions to our bird feeder this week!

The Goldfinches are back. Yellow is my FAVOURITE colour so I love seeing them. Last summer we’d have swarms of 20+ of them. They have a really pretty song too.

Tonight Jeff noticed a bird on a tree in front of the lawn, heading down the steep slope. I took photos of it from the window so I could zoom in and ID it! Turns out it was a Northern Flicker!



There are some red birds around – can you identify?


All winter the Dark-eyed Junco’s have been in our front bushes.

We have Red-breasted Nuthatches

Yesterday we had a White-throated Sparrow at the feeder. It has a splash of yellow on its face and is a little plumper than the other birds that visit the nyger seed feeder.

We’ve had Black-capped Chickadee’s all winter. They are friendly little birds.


We always have crows around. Robins too of course.

I haven’t seen the Blue Jays in at least a month.

More unidentified flying objects – Is this a Chipping sparrow?
