A Room with a View

Bird Watching Paradise at Lookout Point

Yesterday we welcomed an ornithologist to Lookout Point.  Within an hour of his arrival at the inn, David spotted :

  • Canada Goose
  • mallard
  • great blue heron
  • turkey vulture
  • mourning dove
  • chimney swift
  • bank swallow
  • barn swallow
  • purple martin
  • red-headed woodpecker
  • tufted titmouse
  • American robin
  • cedar waxwing
  • great crested flycatcher
  • blue jay
  • northern cardinal
  • red-winged blackbird
  • brown-headed cowbird
  • common grackle (these could go away!)
  • rose-breasted grosbeak
  • song sparrow
  • chipping sparrow
  • house finch
  • house sparrow
  • carolina wren

Many of the birds are now nesting on the property, including the mallards.  Watching the birds helps me to not take life too seriously.  Somehow, I feel lighter.  Thank you, David, for identifying some of our feathered friends.
