My husband and I live on a quiet cul-du-sac in a far West suburb of Atlanta. About a week ago, some birds showed up that we'd never seen before. At first glance, they look gray, but upon closer investigation, they are actually taupe. The birds are about 7 inches long, tip of beak to tip of tail, and the tips of their feathers are quite pretty. And they are very brave! When I took these photos, I was just on the other side of the glass door, and the bird was eating seed with FOUR squirrels! :-D We've consulted our "Birds of Georgia" book in both the gray and brown section, and none of the birds are an exact match. Can anyone identify our new friends?
