This little fella (a darling Saw-Whet Owl) is in rehabilitation, and after receiving treatment was released back into the wild.

Unless youare prepared to raise and keep/eat them, do not buy chicks.  These are usually roosters used for to make a quick buck at Easter and the although the dye is harmless, these newborn babies are plunged into it, cold and wet, so we can do something stupid.  If you are serious about raising chickens, these certainly would not be the ones to start with or the ones you want to end upstuck with.

Patricia I love your owl picture - they look so cute.
Thanks for visiting everyone. I enjoy reading your posts and looking at your pictures.

Sorry got behind here. I will see if I can identify the bird using my field guide Sentient. Beautiful bird pictures Tony and Sentient. Thanks so much for the video Ruth.

Sentient Biped, your bird feeder pics remind me of my favorite short video, Birdbeat. I can watch it over and over.

Could that larger bird be a Northern Flicker?

Comment by Sentient Biped on January 20, 2013 at 10:45pm

Joan, you are right!  It's a male downy woodpecker!  Between you and google, I can figure it out.  The link even says they hang out with chicadees, which they were doing at my feeder.  And lots of finches.

Now the other one...  I have no idea!
