Garden (Yard) List 2013

Since, I don't see a Garden (Yard) List thread for 2013 yet, I thought I would create it. Here is the spot to put your Garden (Yard) bird sightings for 2013.

My start for the 1st:

#1 Mallard
#2 Rock Pigeon
#3 Downy Woodpecker
#4 Pileated Woodpecker
#5 Blue Jay
#6 American Crow
#7 Common Raven
#8 Black-capped Chickadee
#9 Tufted Titmouse
#10 White-breasted Nuthatch
#11 Brown Creeper
#12 Golden-crowned Kinglet
#13 *RARE Bohemian Waxwing - Single bird! Was calling as it flew over the yard. Was a special surprise for Jan 1st.
#14 Common Redpoll
#15 American Goldfinch

Not to many birds out... but that's normal for January here.

Cheers . If I can race ahead now I might not get caught for a little while? There was another Sandwich Tern 2 weeks ago, Siskins seem to have vacated the park, and there are 2 Red-breasted Mergansers on the river, but unfortunately the bit they were on is hidden behind some trees ...

Anyway ...

31) Teal c.10
32) Mallard 2 in flight
33) Moorhen
34) Kingfisher

All at the obligatory 1200 metre range.

I'll enter the fray tomorrow, but do not worry I'll not hit the 30 mark for weeks yet :)

A couple more ...

35) Collared Dove 2 in flight
36) Siskin 6+

Streaking ahead .. (well with the Siskins anyway ). Looks like they're still in the vicinity. Feral pigeons recorded too. Only birds in the garden so far were 2 Magpies on the garage roof.

Relatively mild here of late, so activity a little lower than to be expected, still quite a nice haul to start the year off, especially the reappearance of my Three-toed Woodpecker. White-backed Woodpeckers also doing very well, four on my feeders now.


1. Common Buzzard
2. Grey-headed Woodpecker
3. Black Woodpecker
4. Three-toed Woodpecker
5. White-backed Woodpecker
6. Great Spotted Woodpecker
7. Middle Spotted Woodpecker
8. Fieldfare
9. Marsh Tit
10. Willow Tit
11. Blue Tit
12. Great Tit
13. Treecreeper
14. Jay
15. Magpie
16. Hooded Crow
17. Raven
18. Siskin
19. Bullfinch

However, best thing on my land so far this year comes at the end of this little video clip...

A Night on the Ice, Beavers & Buddies.

A new species for my land.

37) Cormorant

A low-level fly through in misty conditions gave me just enough for an adequate id.

A couple of almost subliminal very brief views in the scope the last two days were probably Med Gull and Red-breasted Merganser - but don't think I can really have them on the basis of 1 wing and a blur with white wing flashes through the trees unfortunately ... even if that's what they were.
