Mystery Bird

Cathy Sorger, fledge watcher from 2009, sent me this photo taken in her backyard and wants to know what kind of bird it is. I can’t quite make out the markings. Hopefully, some of you can. Please let us know. Cheers!

Hi Bob and Robin,
Can you tell me what bird this is that comes and sits for hours in a tree in my back yard? Actually, one day there were 2 of them. I love having them!

  1. One of an adult pair. There will be a nest very close by, where you can observe them raising a brood of young this spring. Very entertaining, especially in late June when they "fledge".
