What types of birds might you see? If you live in North America, the Northern Cardinal is a common feeder bird. It is readily identified by its bright red color.

Mourning doves, a type of pigeon, often congregate under bird feeders. Chipmunks and squirrels like eating from the feeder, too!

You may also see mockingbirds or eastern bluebirds, though these rarely visit bird feeders. Why not draw pictures to illustrate your life list?
