Redpolls, there is no shortage of them this year. They can empty my 4 feeders in one day. They get help from the few pine siskins that still come though. The siskins throw all the seed on the ground from the tube feeders. I guess they have to find that special seed amongst the thousands.

The third shot is very sharp with a nice background!

I have two deer carcasses left and will probably hang one up on S. Admiral and I was thinking of hanging the other on Arkola if you don't mind. I think its time to unload this stuff before it really starts warming up and stinking.

Thanks all!....Even though I've taken a bazillion photos of these little guys...It's just nice to watch em and maybe end up with "that special bird pose" that maybe was missed previously

Go ahead Jay,...I threw all my "carci" out last week after that 3 day warm spell we had....most of em at the Owl Avenue wood feeder...there's so much there, I could bust up the one's remaining and hang em elsewhere if needed...don't want to take a chance of the carcasses thawing in my shed in town here grin....

They all look great Jonny but 3 and 4 are my favs. I still have a cage that needs to go but maybe I will just take it out in the woods for weasel Willy and his buds grin

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
