Birds I'm Watching: Close to Home

I took a walk today up the long road that winds through the woods behind our house. It was in the early afternoon, which is not the best time of day to see birds, but I counted 17 species nevertheless. Most of them were birds I'm used to seeing at the bird feeder. The exceptions were a wild turkey, some tree swallows, a violet-green swallow, and a Pacific-slope flycatcher. The flycatcher sat still enough to allow me to get a good photo.
