I swear we had a ton of birds around here until I started paying attention to them haha. Even my son mentioned this to me. We even made a homemade bird feeder and put out water and they avoid us like the plague.

Ah well, we are going to a wildlife sanctuary on Friday to do a bird count. Hopefully with an experienced birder, we will see something cool.

I agree 100%!! If you see the same bird every day as you're driving down the road, it will fail to show the day you bring your binoculars.

It's the House Finches. They should actually be called House Snitches.

Why is it the house finches? They drive everything else off?

No, they tattle to the other birds and tell them to avoid us. :P

Thank you Bigfoot... I meant to post it in Birds and Birding since I am not wanting a bird identified for once :) Thank you!

Bigfoot... on second thought it would probably be more appropriate in backyard birds and feeders.

No they just ridicule and make fun of us. The House Snitches are the ones to watch out for.
