Quarantine Birding Sept. 5-19, 2020

Exactly 3 weeks ago my family and I had to leave on a sudden trip to the midwest of the United States for a family emergency. Back in Canada 2 weeks ago, we are just coming to the end of our mandatory 14 day quarantine at home now. Here are the birds encountered from my yard during these two weeks.
