What birds can you expect to see in a Maryland backyard? While every property is different with its own mix of birds, many are pretty typical. These are the Maryland backyard birds commonly seen in our central yard.
Spring backyard birds are always interesting. You never know when a new bird will arrive in the yard.
Here in central Maryland, it has been feeling like summer lately. We have to remind ourselves that it is actually still spring. The yard has been lively, with quite a few interesting spring bird visitors over the past week. Most will not settle in to become yard regulars. They will continue on their way within a day or two, but it sure is fun to watch them while they are here.
This weekend we wound up spending a good chunk of Saturday and Sunday birding at Patuxent Research Refuge’s North Tract. Neither day turned out as we had hoped or expected, but we still saw something to excite us each day. It’s just that kind of place . . .
