We have mockingbirds, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, cardinals, doves, grackles, and all kinds of other birds that I don't know the name of. Our favorite has to be the cardinals. One year, we watched a family of 3 baby cardinals grow up. I've even learned how to tell the difference between young cardinals, daddy cardinals, and mommy cardinals.

According to BirdFeeding.org, "This national event was created to advance and publicize the wild bird feeding and watching hobby."
Bird watching is a popular hobby for lots of people. Many people place bird feeders in their trees and bird baths in their yards for the enjoyment that comes from watching these wild and graceful creatures flutter around.
Do you enjoy bird watching? What type of bird frequents your yard the most?
