Yesterday (June 30th) at approxiamately 7pm. I heard this list of birds on the Merlin App:
American Robin, Common Crackle, Red-winged Blackbird, Blue Jay, Hairy Woodpecker, European Starling and Tufted Titmouse.
This morning (July 1st) in addition to those from last night, I heard the following: Northern Flicker, Wood Duck, Song Sparrow, Pilated Woodpecker, Eastern Wood-Pewee and House Sparrow.
There are many more birds at come to the feeder that is on this list, such as: Red-bellied Wood pecker, Mouring Dove (stays on the ground) Red-Breasted Nuthatch, Brown-headed Cowbird, Black-capped Chikadee, American goldfinch, Northern Cardinal, and Downy Woodpecker.
I am certain that I am missing a few.
I have many videos I could submit, but the quality is not great from my cellphone.
