Backyard Birds of Winter

Thanks to Project FeederWatch, we have good data on the birds that are most likely to visit yards and feeders in our membership area in winter. Here are 27 of our most common species, photographed locally by JAS President Jim Bresnahan. Click on the photos to enlarge and read general descriptions, adapted from the Audubon phone app. Links go to detailed information, including songs and calls, in National Audubon's online Guide to North American Birds.
