The Southern mixed forests are great for bird watching, huh?
When I lived in Little Rock there were woods behind the house I built. I put a huge picture window in the family room to look out on the woods.
One day I saw a black snake making his way across the yard. Suddenly a hawk swooped down and carried it off!
My everyday favorites were Chickadees, Nuthatches, and Titmice. I put nesting boxes up for Downy Woodpeckers but never actually saw one.
