Bird Species List for Home between Jan 01, 2012 and Dec 30, 2013

Site description:
Home - about 2 acres of field, garden and landscaped yard on the Auburn-Enumclaw plateau. The field hosts solitary pine, cottonwood and ash trees, hazelnut and quince bushes and a brushy fenceline. The house is enclosed by trees - a cedar tree out front, a line of Lombardy-type poplars just west of the house, a fir, blue spruce, big-leaf maple and sequoiah on the east side and a grove of Douglas fir on the north side. Dense rhododendron and juniper grow under the trees on the east and north of the house. Neighboring properties include fields and pastures, some with standing water in the winter, and small deciduous woodlots along with residential yards. Seed and suet feeders attract birds in the winter.
