Talking New garden tick

Today I added Hobby to my garden birds list, which includes birds seen from the garden. As I mowed the lawn it shot down the gardens of the houses opposite. I could not see if it was chasing anything.

If you sit and watch or just keep your eyes open it's really quite amazing what goes by. I think that applies to everywhere.

Sure does pay off. How about 35/40 Waxwings?

That's what I just had flew over this morning, my first ever May Waxwings (they usually leave by mid/late April)

Never had Waxwing. I'm jealous. Had Peregrines, Goshawk to name a few. Even Pied Flycatcher! Not bad for a suburban garden.
