Finch Frolic Garden: Bird List

Thanks to my amazing daughter, Miranda Kennedy, who photographs, identifies, classifies and lists birds, plants and insects, here is a list of birds sighted at our 1.68-acre garden.  Many of these birds have been sighted for the first time in the last three years since the garden was installed.  Permaculture habitat is responsible!
