Back yard bird feeding

Every morning, when I feed my pet flock, I pour yesterday's feed into a dish and scatter it in the yard for the wild birds.

I've learned that they prefer scattered feed over the close proximity of a feeder, and I've been attracting some fun variety.

There are the Mourning doves, of course. I'm a volunteer for the local wildlife rehab, and six of them were soft released fosters of mine. ^v^

There are always cardinals. Usually two pair and their peeps.

The grackles are back this year, but only four to eight join in.

There are brown headed cowbirds, meadowlarks, and sparrows everywhere.

All the seed attracts bugs, which the Robins, brown thrashers, and mocking birds appreciate.

And the infertile or rotten eggs are a real treat for the bluejays.

I've even gotten a glimpse of some of the more elusive birds. ^v^
A redwing blackbird has taken to bringing his wife around, and yesterday, I saw my first indigo bunting!

So what do you guys delight in seeing out the back window?
