Bird Watchers

My girlfriend and I often watch the birds in my backyard. She has taken oodles of pictures. We are currently in the midst of a power struggle between the Blue Jays and Cardinals. Sounds like a Major League Baseball series. The Cardinals (one I named Louie, in particular, who battled with another male I named Carlie over the affection of Louise, the female) used to rule the backyard, but the Jays haved started to take the yard, en masse.

I ran upon this link to a birding webiste this morning. I've seen just about all the birds on this site (save the northern varieties) and quite a few more. We bought birding books at the bookstore with hundreds of birds and their pictures relevant to the state of Alabama. They're quite informative and cool to boot.
