Birding in the Ohio Valley

A backyard feeder will attract a variety of birds, in all sizes.

Scarlet Tanagers, Pileated Woodpeckers, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, Indigo Buntings. Beautiful birds all, and all spotted recently in parks and neighborhoods in our area, along with the more common Cardinals, Goldfinches, Juncos and Carolina Wrens. You just have to look, and listen.

Another great source for information is the American Bird Conservancy.
