Jenny’s bird list for 2020

Jenny’s bird list for 2020
Bald eagle – Jan 2020
_JLS3533b
2020 was not my best birding year. With Coronavirus sending me into confinement I only went birding a few times and in my usual locations. No new birds seen this year, but I treasured the ones that I did get out to see. My house became a birding location. From my windows I saw: House sparrows, House finches, American goldfinches, Lesser goldfinches, Black capped chickadees, Mountain chickadees, Red breasted nuthatches, Pine siskins, American crows, American robins, Eurasian collared doves, Black billed magpies and random gulls flying overhead.
