As we all know the Vineyards is a unique environment and perhaps the most varied aspect of it is the diversity in birds that call our neighborhood home.  Certainly you have noticed the beautiful Cardinals, Bluebirds and large Vultures, but that is just the beginning. 

Greg and Lynne Proios have resided in The Vineyards for some time and during this time they have jotted down their various sightings and they are listed above.  Quite an impressive and list that totals 58 species!

Are there more to be seen in the Vineyards?  Well it is commonly held that there are 914 bird species in North America, and while some may not call Virginia their habitat, it is likely there are a few more to be seen.  If you happen to spot one that isn't on the list, email your sighting along and it will be cheerfully added to the Directory of Vineyards Bird Residents.

Thank you again Greg and Lynne for sharing!
