We were upset we couldn't get any Flickers, Kestrels, Bluebirds, or Tree Swallows in the boxes we put up, but we sure have been enjoying the Barn Swallows who have taken up residence on our front porch. They have done so well this year, since we've made the front door off-limits and avoid going in the front yard much. Every other year, they've abandoned the nest. When not busy catching bugs, they will rest on the clothes line.
The next photos are a Eurasian Tree Sparrow, a wild Brown-headed Cowbird (I could really like these guys if it weren't for the females), and a Baltimore Oriole.
