When we started Project Feederwatch, Dean was confused trying to identify some of the regular visitors to our backyard. To help him, I created two “cheat sheets”. Each contained information I copied from All About Birds web page.
The first sheet was for those “Little Brown Jobs” often called LBJs.
The second was for what I call the “yellow birds”.
These sheets by no means answers all the questions you may have nor do they cover all the birds you may see in your yards. If it helps someone else get more comfortable in their identification, feel free to print from these PDFs.
– Little Brown Jobs
– Yellow Winter Birds
I printed, placed in a protective sheet cover and they have served us well for several years. Hope they help you.

Thanks Judy. These are exactly what I need as a novice backyard watcher. Sue
Very helpful, Judy. Thank you. My bird identification skills are limited. I’m fine with Carolina chickadees, but after that …… Recently we’ve had turkeys come each day to clean up what the other birds toss out of the feeders. They’re fun to watch.
Wonderful idea for new birders! Thank you, Judy.
