Not to sure what I have here, and neither did the staff at Rydell Wildlife Refugee. Maybe some flycatcher variety? Made a short sharp sound for a chirp. here is pics, though not the best.

My first guess, based on bill coloration and length would be a juvenile Easter Wood Peewee.

Second guess, again based on the bill would Olive Sided Flycatcher.

I'd say you've got a juvie eastern wood-pewee or juvie eastern phoebe. Phoebe is what I think.

I would agree with the phoebe. We have some here nesting above the door and I would say an exact match.

Lucky you!!! Above the door? Mine only visit a short time in the spring.

I don't remeber if the tail bobbed or not, it was not hanging around long enough for me to get a decent shot of it, or study at any great lenghts.

Come down to the Lebanon Hills Visitor Center, in Eagan, there is a nesting pair right above the front door (on top of the light fixture). They usually arrive spring time for their first batch, and the past couple of years they later have another batch of young ones.

    • 70 HP Johnson motor.  Older model, but low hours on it.  Starts up fine, but when I go to give it gas the engine bogs down and won't come anywhere near running as fast as it should.  Anyone have any thoughts on the cause?  Wondering if maybe the carbs need to be cleaned.  If so, anyone know how much of a job that is?   Thank you in advance for any feedback.
    • The Warriors won't lose anyone that wants to stay with them since Durant is basically sitting back and saying pay my boys and then we will take care of business.  Hard to lure a free agent from them if their studs take such paycuts...
    • Score!! Nice find.
    • I still don't like the Hanzal/White trade.  I can see a team that is on the edge or coming into the playoffs as a 6,7,8 seed, but at the time, the Wild was 1st in the West and everything was going great.  I really didn't see a reason why they needed to change or bring in other players.  If it ain't broke, don't fix it.  They could have brought guys up from Iowa down the stretch to spell the vets and give them some motivation.   I'd like to know what Baby Boudreau wants to change or what he would like to see on the team. It would be nice to have somebody that really knows and wants to work the front of the net.  Parise is the closest thing we have to that and that isn't good for his longevity.  Be nice if Coyle embraced a role like that and used his size out front.  
    • Probably because most people wouldn't sell one of these for that much. I'm not sure why they did and well I didn't ask. Maybe they didn't like it as even being a older grill it had hardly been used and looks like new. I already had a Holland Companion grill that works great but this is even better. 
    • Skol!  I'm excited to see how Cooks pans out.  He seems legit so far!  What was the deal with KFAN ditching the rubechat forums?  I know the political page could get a little overheated at times but the others seemed pretty tame.  Too bad! 
    • Wow!! Now THAT's a deal!!!!!!! Why can't I find stuff like that?! 
    • Well not exactly new. Found this at a yard sale for $40.     
    • Havnt seen him for a while and is a lot bigger now.
