Red-shouldered Hawk!

Very much an oddball bird here, considering habitat. They just don't come here. They're common in forests (mainly riparian) but anywhere else in my area they're basically nonexistent. Kind of cool to see.

I’m at 43, and 44 if you count the certainly non-native Northern Cardinal. My yard is really tiny, so I don’t get many birds other then the WCSPs, SOSPs, BEWRs, MODOs, HOFIs, LEGOs, AMCRs, and OCWA. Those are here every day, but other than that it’s pretty random.

I'm still impressed by folks who have yard lists with over 100 species. Even with 558 lists in my yard, I only have 50 species, and around 10 of those were fly-overs. Oh well, guess that's what being in the suburbs is like. Here's what my bar charts look like.

Meanwhile, at my aunt's house in South Carolina, I've seen 58 different birds on only 33 checklists.

I have twenty acres as my backyard, so getting 180 is just a matter of getting out there.

I don't really bird my yard that much, it seems like I'm never home when it's light outside. I have most of the expected easy birds but there's definitely a few noticeable misses.

Most ducks -- Only have Mallard and Pintail as flyovers

Golden Eagle -- Have had them flying over the road, but never from the yard

Olive-sided Flycatcher -- My dad's had one in the yard while I was gone

Say's Phoebe

Lazuli Bunting -- might be a stretch but they breed a quarter of a mile away.

Me too, and my yard is tiny. There’s only like 2 decently sized trees in the yard(I’m not sure what kind of tree they are, probably some introduced thing that doesn’t attract many songbirds), and a few hedges and tiny trees. There’s not really any grass in the yard except for the small patch under the feeder. I’m only at 44 species for my yard. I’m missing a ton of “easy” flyovers(ducks and shorebirds, specifically, as well as others). I’m also not in a good habitat at all in my neighborhood.

I have zero trees, zero shrubs, and no grass. I gave up backyard birding when we moved. *sighs*
