Creep!

I finally got a shot of a Brown Creeper where he's not totally blending in to the tree trunk. Don't tell Birdsong, but I visited her backyard while she was gone today. wink

Glad somebody could use the backyard. I drove for four hours in a car of four women. Of course, I saw more birds than I have seen in weeks--months. Even passed the sanctuary at Big Stone. Alas--no stops! Congrats X. The little guy has been hanging around lately. I keep missing him. Didn't you get any fox sparrows?

nice shot XT. They blend in so well it is hard to get a good shot of them.

Birdsong, sounds like a rough day for you. grin

I saw a couple foxes when I first got there, but they left and didn't come back. The Juncos didn't seem to mind me there, and I saw a couple Gold Finches and a couple Buzzards circling.

Thanks guys, for the comments.

Almost got this little guy this morning. Messed up the eye a fair bit though. Those vultures soared past a few times when I was shooting from my upstairs window. Would have been a fun shot!

Those little buggers don't sit still for many than a millisecond. You pretty much have to keep the shutter button down and hope one shot catches him when and if he pauses. There is definitely some luck involved. And vultures are just as repulsive in flight as they are sitting. grin

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
