    At various times at my feeders were Northern Cardinals and fledglings, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Titmouse, Carolina Wren, Mourning Dove, Goldfinch, House Finch, Blue Jay, and a very small brown finch that I did not recognize. In my neighborhood I have also seen Mockingbirds and Barred Owls, Swallow-tail Kites, and Red-shouldered Hawks. The Kites, I think, were looking for nests that were blown down during a storm. They were flying very low overhead - maybe 10' above me. I love these birds with their split tails.

    Egyptian Goose? I didn't know this guy came through the Orlando area! I saw them in South Africa!!  Another bird that comes to the area that I've never seen here is the Common Eider. Scoters, Mergansers, and the Chachalaca (whatever that is - have to look it up) make up the rest of the 5. These are according to Merlin. I am getting a new pair of binocs to do some more bird watching and hopefully, I will see some new species (for me).  Haven't been out much as the temps during the day and early evening are mid 90s with feel like in the 100s. Between temps and Covid, I've been staying in the house most of the time. But armed with binoculars, I plan to do some early morning bird watching!
