Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

Evening Visitor

The other day right before dusk, I heard the chirping of a bird right outside our bay window.  I don't recognize the call of many (any?) birds, so I went to the window to try to associate the sound with a face.  I was pleasantly surprised to see a Carolina wren that was making a late call to the black oil sunflower seeds I've been putting out.  He was on the step of the deck doing a funny little hope with a half-turn accompanied by a series of chirps.  It was dark but I got a video of it.

Today, I spotted him earlier and got a better shot or two:
