My Backyard

Photos taken in my backyard in Bloomington, MN. It's nice to have a lot of trees in the yard and in the neighborhood, which allows a great diversity of birds. I've counted a total of 44 species in my backyard. Largest single day count was 18, and I saw 6 species of woodpecker in that same day.

Check out my backyard weather courtesy of a Davis Vantage Pro 2 weather station.

If you leave me a message or comment, I'll do my best to return the favor! As always, I'm happy to answer any questions. Be sure to check out my Live Feeder Cam to see what birds are currently at the feeders. Take a look at our Chickadee nest box cam for a closeup view of our nesting chickadees. Thanks for visiting.
