Here, American goldfinch are a dime a dozen! At our Cape feeders we were happy to see a few. At the seed feeder, we have feeder fights and regularly see 20 or more at ant one time. The other regular visitors include pine siskin, another bird that was a nice surprise on the Cape, and red-breasted nuthatch.
But, here are the "special" birds we are seeing with some regularity: black-headed grosbeak, red cross bills, chestnut-backed chickadee, red-shafted flicker, Oregon junco, spotted towhee and rufous-sided hummingbird. Great horned owls call at night.
We've seen black oystercatchers and western gull and pigeon guillemot too! So a nice variety of birds. We hear hermit thrush with their gorgeous flute-like call. And we've seen both mourning and Eurasian collared doves. So we are happy in this campground for now.
Birds 'r' us!
