Common birds of WA state

The birds most likely to capture our attention with their songs during early spring in the Pacific Northwest are not migratory visitors, nor exotic strangers, but good old perennial neighbors. – Seattle Times

On that theme, from our backyard to the parks, to the outskirts of our immediate cities, most of these birds are very active in Spring in our area. I love listening to them (some start singing as early as 4am in distance) and watching them with naked eyes. Some are seen in other seasons, and some throughout the year.

For my interactive page: click here to see the birds, hear them, and learn more.

Thanks to the many awesome resources available to glean so much rich information about them: I had to do only little research to find their songs/calls, images for each. I hope this will give you a little glimpse, an auditory as well as a visual ‘tour’ of the enviroment. Would love to see and learn about birds (or plants, etc.) from your areas too! Near the bottom of this post, you’ll find some apps to aid bird identification in your areas as well.
