Urban Birds in Georgia

Yikes, I have to get on this blogging thing more. So much to talk about but so little time! Anyway, in a previous post I made about plans for the summer, I talked about Celebrating Urban Birds. The CornellLab of Ornithology raises awareness about birds in the city. By sending free kits to families or schools, in return helps scientists learn how birds use urban habitats. 

Our first 10 minute bird watch session was pretty boring Lol. It was really hot and humid out and the kids would not be quiet long enough. I can't blame them though. This weather has been miserable! Finally, at the very end of our time out watching for birds we saw a Cedar Waxwing and an American Robin. We have seen others before, like Georgia's bird the Brown Thrasher. 

These birds are gorgeous creatures. I look forward to the day when I can have peace and quiet on my front porch, drinking my coffee and watching the birds.

Here is a video I found on YouTube of a Brown Thrasher. It may bore some people but if you ever just want to relax and watch nature, it is very peaceful.

I was hoping that we would see more birds. Usually they are flying about everywhere where we live. We live in the city and very close to the street. Our yard doesn't have many bird friendly items either. Something that I would like to do is make some sort of bird bath and bird feeders. They will definitely come around then! 

Are there many birds where you live? What kind? If you don't know take a picture and find out! Please share your thoughts in the comments below.
