Answer by dadnbob
The first is probably a Red Wing Blackbird.
The second is probably a Mourning Dove.
You could have several different species of sparrows…..House, Chipping, Fox (or more)
The gold is a American Goldfinch.
Yes, the dull brown one next to the cardinal is probably his mate. Then tend to stay together year round….if you see one, you’ll see the other.
You can have a number of different hawks about.
Get yourself a small book of the birds to start with.
You can feed black oil sunflower seeds and white proso millet. In the winter a suet is good to have out.
