RE: birds and other critters

My brother now lives in Tacoma WA and when he was out here visiting last
spring we sat for a while on the grass in the yard, and he commented on all
the activity my feeders got, and how much bird chatter there was - said it
was like being in an aviary!  Now they have birds there, but maybe not so
many of the social (flocking/small group) tweety birds, so they aren't so
noticeable if you're not looking for them?

Marge, I thought your list was excellent for MD birds - a couple we have
here to add to it would be the great blue heron and the Baltimore oriole,
and sharp-shinned and red-tailed hawks, and turkey vultures.  Also we had an
indigo bunting (once...).  P.S. Your starlings are up here now... want them

Subject: [CHAT] birds and other critters

Hey, I'm curious for those of you who are from the green east but have
spent time here in the arid west.  I was just talking with a fella who
has lived here for the last four years and he says that one of the
biggest things he's had to adapt to has been the lack of critters
specifically birds in Ca. versus Chicago where he hails.  He says that
in the spring, summer and fall there are many, many more birds and just
plain wildlife there than there is here.  Can anybody enlighten me?
I've never lived anywhere else so I don't have anything to compare it
