One of my favorite features of the Ballentine Library is our beautiful picture window with a view of the woods. It is so relaxing to look out into the trees to see seasonal changes and to spot birds and animals.
We have a bird feeder and bird bath that can be seen from the seating area in the rear of the library. Our wooded location attracts a wide variety of common and unusual birds.
Recently, library staff have spotted a Cooper's Hawk, a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and a Red Bellied Woodpecker, among many others.
Stop by to watch birds yourself or to find out what birds we have spotted recently. Feel free to bring your binoculars for a closer look.
