While visiting my sister in Delaware over the holidays, my niece, husband, father and I went for a short birding outing. We got about 20 species with a few more added at my parents’ house and had some good looks at many of the birds. Maddie, my niece, is getting quite good at identifying many species. Her dad is feeding her new interest by feeding the birds in their backyard where she has been diligently observing the hungry visitors. However, I think her highlight was sliding across a frozen pond we discovered at one of the parks.
Previously taken pictures of some of the birds we saw are shown here.
Cardinal, House Sparrow, White-throated Sparrow, Song Sparrow, Crow, Red-tailed Hawk, Chickadee, Junco, Tufted Titmouse, Downy Woodpecker, Rock Pigeon, White-breasted Nuthatch, Starling, Ring-billed Gull, Great Black-backed Gull, Carolina Wren, Northern Harrier, Mockingbird, Red Bellied Woodpecker, Blue Jay, Hairy Woodpecker

Where in Delaware? That’s my old digs so I’m interested in where you went birding. Nice shots, btw.
