Durbin's Front and Backyard

I thought I would include some pictures of my front and backyard. I have changed it over the years (with my wife's input) to create a bird friendly habitat. We have lots of understory trees and bushes. Many of the trees and bushes have berries. I have also added several ponds and a creek running between two of them. Many birds are attracted to the yard especially during the migration times in the spring and fall. I set up a blind and have taken many pictures of birds as they come into the water and feeders.
