My garden has over a dozen species of visiting birds.

  • Anna’s hummingbirds – If you add a hummingbird-feeder, you will have them year-round
  • Lesser Gold-finches – they like the small niger seed
  • House Finches (aka Rose finches) – they like the small niger seed plus larger seeds up to sunflower size
  • Oregon juncos
  • Chestnut-backed Chickadees
  • Bewick Wren
  • Scrub Blue Jays
  • Hooded Orioles – They feed on nectar and live in palm trees
  • Hawk
  • Crows – They will occasionally visit the backyard. However, they normally do not like enclosed areas because they are more vulnerable when they need to take off.
