For the past week, Eastern Bluebirds have been bringing their fledglings to our feeder for dried mealworms. It’s been an eventful week. So far the parents have introduced them to the mealworm feeder. Two fledglings discovered a sprinkler. And one fledgling almost strangled himself in a feeder pole.
What birds can you expect to see in a backyard in Maryland? While every property is different and will have a different mix of birds, many are pretty typical. I live in a suburban neighborhood between Baltimore and DC. Our yard has a lot of mature trees and is within a mile or so of ponds and other water. These are the birds commonly seen in our central Maryland backyard.
