Meant to post something like this at 95 but not long after 96 will do as well.
What will be yard birds #97-100?
Some background: yard is pretty standard suburban-sized lot. Back yard is surrounded b spruces and has lots of feeders and a big raspberry patch. Front yard is grass with some bushes and an apple tree. Side street ends at a marshy spot about 1/4 of a mile away. I can see a sliver of Hardy Pond as well. I count anything seen or heard from, in, or over the yard.
1. Common Raven
2. Bald Eagle
3. Blue-headed Vireo
4. American Coot
