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

    • I am not one to post on here much but I am always "Lurking in the shadows". Anyway I have a question about a Grand Prix I bought a few years ago. When I first acquired the car it would up shift into the next gear as soon as you stepped on it fairly hard making for a rather uneventful and slow accelerating process. I figured this was normal as it was the only thing I found unusual. Then after awhile it begin to shake subtly when accelerating in first and second gear after second gear it would accelerate flawlessly. in the last few months it has begun to develop a fairly bad jerk when stopping and then going again. This ONLY happens after driving long distances. It never happens if I drive under 100 miles .Also it only happens about 1/3 of the time after driving these long distances. It will still accelerate slowly until about 3 mph and then it will jerk fairly hard when it does happen. Any Ideas what would cause this? The long distance thing is what confuses me.
    • What a load of dung question.  In your eyes no one could respond with a "rational" explanation. Johnson knew what it was going to take to get into the debates when he decided to run.  He failed up to this point so suck it up. Maybe you and Dave can get together and drown your tears together over a couple cold ones.
    • Do you have any rational explanation why a candidate who is on the ballot in all 50 states, and has a petition to be included in the debates with over 1 million signatures on it, should not be in the debates? https://www.johnsonweld.com/debate?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=tweet&utm_term=GJ-09-23&utm_campaign=debate
    • This was Sunday morning after we set decoys. Maybe the duck dock is to comfortable......
    • Sweety, son and I are both-In. Will try and hold out for a buck but no Deer in the freezer so if it's Brown its Down!
    • I may have missed it when I dozed off in the middle of the "debate", but I don't believe there was any mention of Aleppo in the whole affair...    
    • Del drops the mic.   Nice dodge.   How would Del know what Trump and Clinton are thinking or are afraid of (if they are afraid of anything)?  
    • You don't have to but you will own everything Hillary does.
    • I think I'd rather it be dirty than apply solvents to it.   It is a four-wheeler, not a corvette.  They are made to be dirty  I might try armor all or something but i'd stick with something made for automotive purposes.
