Interesting picture Melinda.  That squirrel doesn't seem to be bothered by the birds at all.

I've seen more colorful birds on this site that I thought existed, and so many interesting poses and actions.  Photoshop is a good program, but it's frustrating trying to decide what is real anymore.

Hey Tony!
Wow Stunning beauty of a bird!
I'll see if I can look it up in my field guide or online.

Steph, or anyone. What kind of bird is this? Stunning.

Comment by Ruth Anthony-Gardner on December 18, 2012 at 10:36pm

I disagree, booklover. The starlings are trying to horn in and squirrel isn't sharing.

Comment by Steph S. on December 18, 2012 at 10:26pm

oh wow!! Such wonderful pictures. Thank you!!

Booklover - I love the mammal sharing with the birds.

Tony - I don't think that is Photoshopped.

Tony - I love the owl with the wings outstretched and the sea birds photo. Need to get my field guide to identify.

I keep looking at the Parakeet picture - so beautiful.

Comment by Tony Carroll on December 18, 2012 at 1:45pm

I know we've had owls here before, but ran into this one with wings outstetched, just had to post.

Comment by Steph S. on December 18, 2012 at 10:51am

Thank you so much Tony.

I'm so glad all of you are here.
