I have summer tanagers in my yard but rarely see them.  They stay up in the tree tops whereas the cardinals are everywhere.  Sometimes I get tricked by a tanager when I thought it was just a cardinal.

We have screech owls in our woods but only hear them.  Have never seen them.

Thank you Dominic you are right. Bread is empty calories. Thanks for the beautiful bird picture Dominic and Lillie. Wow - that owl really blends in.
