Backyard birds


Welcome to my gallery
There are many varieties of birds in North America; in fact, there are more 630 species in Canada, and the U.S.A. Chances are, many of those species can be seen in your own backyard. If you can meet their basic needs, such as food, and water some of these birds can be attracted to your backyard, and who knows, establish permanent residence.
