Great sighting!!! I wish you opened up the guessing to your greater blogger community. But all I was really hoping for was a titmouse.

Ooh, we get those here! Frank loves bird watching. He'd like to be bird-eating, I'm sure.

This almost makes me want to move out of the city.

Well, almost.

Last summer though, when I was visiting family in Cape May County NJ, I was taking a walk on a semi-rural road when all of a sudden I saw this great big hawk who swooped down and sat on the top of a road sign as if he ruled the whole area. Which he did.

Jennifer, you've inspired me to figure out what kind of birds hang out in our tree in front of our living room window all the time. When we took our Christmas tree down we thought about not putting the big chair back in its place. (In front of the window.) But, felt like we should because Jack, our kitty, loves to sit on the back of the chair and stare at all the birds. I tend to get a kick out of watching Jack watch the birds instead of watching the birds myself. I'll have to change that. Although, I'm not sure my eye would be able to differentiate between the different types. I don't seem to be an eagle eye like you! I clicked on all your links and they sort of all looked the same to me. I'll see if I can train my eye.

My favorite sightings here in my Houston home have been pileated wodpeckers and Indigo Buntings. The woodpeckers are awe inspiring because they are huge - and they are reminiscent of Woody Woodpecker. Once I spied three juveniles in one tree all together. The indigo bunting was such an intense blend of blue colors that morphed from deep ultramarine into intense cerulean. I was sure it was a house pet that had escaped because while I had seen colors like that on butterflies and in pet stores, I had never before seen it in my own backyard, sitting 2 feet from me. We also regularly see racoons, possums, rabbits, and armadillos as well as the omnipresent squirrels.

Pileated Woodpeckers are awesome! I can't say I've seen one in person... only the cute Downy Woodpecker and the Northern Flicker. I have also not seen a Indigo Bunting! That one sounds like pure eye candy.

I have seen plenty of raccoons, opossums, rabbits... but no armadillos. We do have a fox though!

Between ROD and 3B!, I figured you'd recognize a nuthatch.

That bush gets a lot of action.

You have a Jenna Bush in your yard?

LOL Brando!

That bush gets a lot of action

Does that mean it's frequented by woodcocks?

My Drunken next door neighbor arrived on my doorstep yesterday waving his arms in the air accusing me of having been a bird in a past life....
I may just be able to find myself here... (see birdfinder site link above!!)
