Get to know the birds you can find in your backyard: •The Ruby-throated Hummingbird can fly in any direction and beat its wings dozens of times each second. • The Pileated Woodpecker has a flaming red crest and is the size of a crow. It is the sixth-largest woodpecker in the world. • The Black-capped Chickadee hides food for the cold winter months. It can remember where all its food is hidden! • The lovely Eastern Bluebird sings a soft, pleasing warble. Watch for bluebirds perched on wires or fence posts. • Tanagers are stunning birds. The male Scarlet Tanager is a neon red, with shiny black wings and a black tail. • The Northern Cardinal is one of the most widely recognized birds. Males are a brilliant red, and females and young are brown with a reddish tinge.
