Thanks for the scary bird pictures, Sentient Biped. Some call out for captions.

Oh wow! How wonderful! So many new posts here.

Your yard sounds wonderful Sentient - a real treat for the birds.

Ruth - that's a great cartoon - and if they keep cutting down the trees to build roads - that's exactly what it will look like.

Sentient - cool picture from Birdzilla. Nice.

Crocoduck is great Joan - thanks. People just don't understand evolution - you are right.

What is the bird at the tail, a pigeon? I named your photo "sharpigeon" until corrected.

Beautiful little bird. 

I just added a thistle feeder to my yard.  Now they can get mixed birdseed, or thistles, whichever they want

There is also a suet feeder.

Haven't seen one of these.  Mostly house finches, chicadees, and jays.
