    Seen two mail cardinals fight over a female a couple of times this year. The female didn't seem to care one iota.

    Had the garage door open this morning and the walk in door in the back. A bird flew in thru the garage door past me and out the back door like it did this every day.

    Can anyone ID this feather I found? It was in woods behind my house.

    Looks like a Coopers Hawk or Red-Tail Hawk, cool feather.

    The crabapple next to my house has been hosting a few different warblers as they pass through. This is a black throated blue

    The variety of birds is getting fairly low around here now. Nut Hatch on the right I believe.

    Red breasted nuthatch. Brave lil things. Steadying a basket full of black oil seeds, hanging from a clothesline behind the cabin, these would buzz me before landing to get a seed.

    Red breasted nuthatches-Mom’s favorite bird. Little spirit warrior shows on up and brightens days.

    Our one legged Dove. Other than landing a little rough she seems perfectly healthy. upload_2020-9-11_18-56-44.jpeg

    Was making lunch and saw this guy on the deck lying on it's back. Must have hit the patio door window and got knocked out. Open the sliding door and it flipped over to this position. It walked around the deck the entire time I ate lunch.

    It’s time to kick them out of the yard when the free food does more damage than good…
