Welcome to my bird blog! I am currently writing from Long Island. This is a recent change for me - I've lived most of my life in Portland, Oregon. There are more species of birds here, from what I've seen so far, and they seem more numerous.
In my Portland neighborhood, outdoor cats are abundant, and they prey on birds in my yard daily. I have been living in Garden City for two months now, and have yet to see a cat roaming the neighborhood. It makes complete sense to me now, why birds seem more bold here: one of their main predators is out of the picture.
More to come soon!
Happy Memorial Day
