Bird Names

My wife says so far this spring she's sighted Canadian geese, kingfishers, egrets, blue herons, orioles, gold finches, American redstarts, American coots, swallows, bitterns, wood ducks, mallards, cormorants, greater loons, Bohemian waxwings, grebes, plover, red tail hawks, bald eagles, red wing blackbirds, dark eyed juncos, chickadees, sea gulls, one pelican, northern phalaropes, hooded merganser ducks, catbirds, common goldeneye ducks, purple house finches, sooty terns, crows and ravens, mourning doves, cardinals, blue birds, downy woodpeckers, pileated woodpeckers, and turkeys.

She is recovering from knee surgery, so when she is feeling better she promises to make a more complete list.
