Blue Winged Teals

Cackling Geese

Canada Geese

Common Grackle

Common Redpoll

Dark Eyed Junco

Have seen them a few times in the past couple of years. This is the first decent photo I've been able to get. I made kissing noises which actually got it to stop and watch me for a few minutes. I was a little surprised that it worked.
