Bird watching is a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy! Over the last few months, my family has enjoyed feeding our backyard birds. We have several cardinal families that come to visit our yard daily. They visit regularly because I love to feed them every morning and again throughout the day as they eat!
We also observe birds like blue jays, wood peckers, mourning doves, chickadees, titmice, and other small birds.
