Common Birds in the Treasure Valley

Dark-eyed Junco-There are four types of juncos in the West. Our most common visitor is the Oregon Junco. They have pink bills and a dark head with a brown back and sides. The Junco is a ground feeder. They clean up all the spilled seed from hanging feeders. Attract them by using a ground screen feeder. dark-eyed-junco.jpg
House Finch- The plumage is brown with dark streaks below. The male's forehead, breast and rump are red. house-finch.jpg
American Goldfinch- Winter plumage for both sexes is brownish grey. The male has yellow on the throat and face. In spring the male becomes brilliant yellow. The spring color of the male makes him one of your favorite visitors to your feeders. Tree seed and thistles are his natural diet. american-goldfinch.jpg
Hairy Woodpecker- These birds have white backs, black tails, or black and white tails. The head is striped black and white. hairy-woodpecker.jpg
Pine Siskin- The plumage is grey-brown with extensive streaking. Yellow patches on the wings and base of the tail are best seen when the bird is in flight. Thistle is on the top of their food list. They will also be attracted to quality small seed mixes. Stay away from large seed blends with a milo content. pine-siskin.jpg
House Sparrow- The male is brown streaked with black on the upper body, gray cheeks and underbody. house-sparrow.jpg
Red-winged Blackbird- The male is black with red epaulets with pale yellow trim. The female is streaked brown with a red trim to the shoulders. This bird is a ground feeder. redwinged-blackbird.jpg
Northern Flicker- Also known as the Red Shafted Flicker. This bird is one of the larger birds to visit your yard. He is brown with a white rump, and spotted with black underneath. The male has a red mustache. northern-flicker.jpg
Mourning Dove- The long, tapered tail has white edges. The wings have black spots and are pink on the bottom. Doves are ground feeders; they scavenge seed that falls from feeders. mourning-dove.jpg
CaliforniaQuail- These birds are predominantly grey with a blue-grey breast. The body appears to have scales of white and grey. They feed mornings and evenings. Providing cover will attract more birds. california-quail.jpg
Evening Grosbeak- The male has a dark brown body with black wings and tail, a white patch on the inner wings, and a bright yellow line over the eye. The female is greyish without the yellow eye line. Tree seeds are this bird's main diet. With a strong beak it can crack even cherry pits. evening-grosbeak.jpg
