Project Feeder Watch Week 6

Again, no new species. But lots and lots of new birds, mostly finches. I didn't get decent pictures, thanks to the drizzle, of the mockingbird or either of the nuthatches - White-breasted or Red-breasted - but here are the others in no particular order.

Blue jay and Mourning dove
