    A Squirrel of a Different Color

    I like your images, your squirrel, and your feeder. I'd read someplace in Illinois there is a village where white squirrel's are quite common. I don't know if they are true albino's as yours is though. Thanks for sharing! Mike

    Yesterday Yellowrump Warblers showed up gouging on bugs. They were dressed out in their fall apparel.

    Nice looking family!

    That is way cool! A very successful hatch too, I may say! Nice images also!
  9. Brian, wild flowers often have alot of different names. But in this area we call it Queen Anne's Lace. Don't plant it in your flower garden because it's prolific. Mike

    Mrs Mourning Dove

    While picking apples I found this mother dove sitting on the nest it took her a whole 3 minutes to build!

    Goldfinch fledglings

    Sunday afternoon the Goldfinches brought their young to the feeders. What a noisy racket that was! This morning the young were using the feeders by themselves but still begging when the adults came around. I was a little worried about them this a.m. because we had over two inches of rain in a short time but it appears they are ready for the great outdoors.

    Bird ID Please

    Still seems like a spotted sandpiper. The ones I've seen though are solitary but that's in the early spring. I'm sure someone with shorebird experience will weigh in on this. Mike

    Bird ID Please

    Looks like a spotted sandpiper. Did you notice if it bobbed it's tail alot? Was it around water? Did you notice how it flew? Those are some clues. Mike
