2 Blue Jays
1 Nuthatch
2 Chickadees
Gold Finch (about 10 - one in transitional plumage with specs of black still on his head)
Monk Parakeets (grrrr...cleaned out 1 feeder and 2 suet cages in no time flat)
7 Starlings
2 dozen Sparrows
3 Mourning Doves
Downy Woodpeckers (2 pairs though males feed and leave and then females comes to feed. A regular behavior of them I have noticed in my yard.)

Broad Street Stream:
1 Snipe

Marshes at Longbeach Blvd.(very few birds out there today)

1 Red Tailed Hawk
1 Red Shoulder Hawk
1 Yellow Legs (RR Track Trail)
Chickadees (RR Track Trail)
