Right now, at 5AM, none. But later today:

Gold Finch
House Finch
Downy Woodpecker
Hairy Woodpecker
Red Bellied Woodpecker
Eastern Nuthatch
Black Capped Chickadee
Shore Sparrow
Eastern Song Sparrow
Titmouse
Oriole
Grackle
Brown Headed Cowbird
Blue Jay
Starling
Cardinal
Mourning Dove
Red Winged Blackbird
Mockingbird
Brown Thrasher
Hawk

Had a flock of about 300 Robins come in a week or so ago. Two, totally loaded with berries, hollies were completely stripped in about 20 minutes.

Last Fall, just before migration started, an Osprey started to post up in the tallest Maple. Just surveying the area. He did that for about 3 weeks.

It helps to have marshes within a 1/2 mile on two sides, forest on the third side and the Chesapeake on the fourth.

We have Bald Eagles in the one marsh. They're fun to watch when they dive at the Bay fishing.

I'm still very much in winter conditions, near Algonquin Park in Ontario. With 4' of snow and 3' of ice on the lake, I won't be seeing any migrants or summer birds for some time.

Right now, and throughout winter, we get:

Blue Jays, Black-capped Chickadees, Red and White-breasted Nuthatches, Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers, Juncos and a few Sparrows.

As a bonus, every evening, several flying squirrels come to visit the buffet.

Red bellied woodpecker
downy or hairy woodpecker (hard for me to tell the difference)
cardinals
blue jays
some kind of dove
titmouse (titmice?)
a billion or so sparrows
and two german shepherds who insist on eating the spilled birdseed even though they are well fed.
