Sparrow and Finch-like Songbirds
A beginner should be able to quickly place a bird they see into one of these categories.
Chickadees, nuthatches, bushtit, creeper, wrentit, wrens, and gnatcatchers make up this grouping of small, plump, active birds found in wooded and brushy habitats. Chickadees and nuthatches frequent bird feeders.
