Anhinga A bird of southern swamps, the Anhinga is known as the Water-Turkey for its swimming habits and broad tail, and also as the Snake-Bird for its habit of swimming with just its long head and neck sticking out of the water.
The Boreal Chickadee (Poecile hudsonicus) is a small passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. Their breeding habitat is coniferous woods in Canada, Alaska and the northern edges of the lower forty-eight United States.
Yellow-breasted Chat - Audubon. A bizarre series of hoots, whistles, and clucks, coming from the briar tangles, announces the presence of the Yellow-breasted Chat. The bird is often hard to see, but sometimes it launches into the air to sing its odd song as it flies, with floppy wingbeats and dangling legs, above the thickets. This is our largest warbler, and surely the strangest as well, seeming to suggest a cross between a warbler and a Mockingbird.
Today there was this cute Female House Sparrow in my lilac bush. I never cared for these birds as they are not native to us and they take over the blue bird boxes. However I was able to appreciate this little feathered friend.
