Geninne, I have #4 (Curved Bill Thrashers) that live in my back yard in Tucson AZ. If you want to keep them around, just throw out some unsalted peanuts for them They are crazy about them. They are really fun to watch, getting the shells open with their beaks. I love your birds and your blog.
Not sure if you've already gotten all your answers, but here are the ones I knew: 1)American Kestrel; 2) Lesser Goldfinch; 3)White crowned sparrow (has a beautiful song); 4)Curved-bill thrasher; 5)House finch; 6)Sorry, don't know this one :(; 7)Vermilion flycatcher; 8)Inca dove. Hope that helps! :)
I come here often to see all the wonderful things you share. I came to read the comments to see what kind of birds these lovelies are and had to leave a comment because the word verification is PRENESTS and it was too much of a sign not to pay attention to! I love, love your beautiful art and charming words.
