Wintertime Nature in New Jersey.

Fourth and final day of the Annual Backyard Bird Count. Birds of the day viewed in the backyard, at the birdfeeder and on the patio: Mourning Dove, Red-tailed Hawk, Downy Woodpecker, Blue Jay, Black-capped Chickadee, Tufted Titmouse, European Starling, American Robin, House Sparrow, House Finch, Dark-eyed Junco, White-throated Sparrow, Song Sparrow, Red-winged Blackbird, Brown-headed Cowbird, Common Grackle, Northern Cardinal. The birds were skittish until a band of Blue Jays harassed and chased away a Red-tailed Hawk.
