Summer Backyard Birds in New Jersey: Chickadee, Robin, Catbird

Black-capped Chickadee
American Robin
Gray Catbird
Although the spring migration has ended, there still are quite a few birds in our backyard. This year, the antics of the catbirds are particularly amusing. They eat the jelly that we had set out for the orioles and they eat the insects that Chris stirs up while planting. The most amusing part is that they'll dip insects in the jelly and take them back to the nest to feed their babies.
