  • Scarlet Tanager (Piranga olivacea)

    The Male Scarlet Tanagers seem almost too bright and exotic for northeastern woodlands. These birds are fairly common in oak forests in summer, but they often remain out of sight as they forage in the leafy upper branches. Sometimes in spring when the Scarlet Tanagers have just arrived from their winter home in South America, a late freeze will force them out in the open as they search for insects on roadsides or in gardens. Maybe Porchpets can locate one of them this spring.


    Birdwatching is a popular hobby, and if you’re lucky enough to be able to do it in your own backyard, that’s a huge plus! Birds are great to watch!

    Mallard displaying

     Mallard Duck! Abundant over most of the northern hemisphere, the Mallard is the most familiar wild duck to many people, and the ancestor of most strains of domesticated ducks. In many places this species has managed to domesticate itself, relying on handouts in city parks. Although barnyard and feral ducks may be dumpy and ungainly creatures, the ancestral wild Mallard is a trim, elegant, wary, fast-flying bird.
