My wife Barbara has been feeding birds, squirrels and other animals in our backyard for years. We are very lucky that our house backs up to the Vernon Walker Nature Center in Reston, Virginia. It is classified as a Wildlife Federation Backyard Habitat. We have an endless supply of birds and animals to entertain us.

I have expended the gallery to include perching birds I find in my travels, too. They are often in someone's backyard, just not mine!
