Our friend, Richard Barnes, has out done himself this time! Just wait until you see this wonderful video compilation made up of all of the winter song birds (and some intriguing others) that have visited his Farmers Branch backyard over the last several months. Richard has captured some truly amazing closeups of these charming birds. Here’s the shortlist of species included this time around:

American Crow, American Robin, Barn Owl, Bewick’s Wren, Blue Jay, Brown Thrasher, Carolina Chickadee, Cedar Waxwing, Dark-eyed Junco, Downy Woodpecker, Golden-crowned Kinglet, House Sparrow, Northern Cardinal, Northern Mockingbird, Orange-crowned Warbler, Pine Warbler, Red-bellied Woodpecker, Ruby-crowned Kinglet, Sharp-shinned Hawk, White-winged Dove, Yellow-rumped Warbler

This video creates an excellent example of the wide variety of song birds living right here with us in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. When considered along side the videos Richard has shared with us in the past, you can really begin to develop a feel for the way wildlife in North Texas varies with the changing seasons.

If you haven’t already, be sure and check out the other videos in Richards collection—you can find the links below. Afterwards, take a moment to let him know what you think in our comment section or on Facebook… a little glowing praise never hurt anyone!

Thanks for sharing this with us, Richard!

  1. Chris, thanks for sharing this on the website.

  2. That was 8 minutes of bliss – thank you Richard. (And Chris for posting.) I enjoyed trying to name the birds before the captions came up, and I definitely appreciate the captions and great video. Looking forward to the next video.
