Because they are so well camouflaged and so quick on the move, it's difficult to get a good photo. You have some nice ones there!

Great and fun bird and terrific photos!

-- DONE! My first goal is met: get 100 birds in the first week of January (and I'm over count and still have two days to go). My approach was not to go after the easy birds, but the harder ones and pick up the easier ones along the way. So meeting this goal without really birding the easy spots is encouraging. I might feel different in August.
--  DONE! My goal for the next week (through the 15th) is to get my count up somewhere around 160. That shouldn't be too hard I don't think as I am missing a number of pretty easy species because I've been concentrating on local rarities. I am, however, taking a trip to the grasslands on Sunday hoping to get a new raptor or two and Mountain Bluebird.
--  DONE! With (yeah!) days to go! My goal for this week (through the 22nd of Jan) is to get my numbers up to around 170. I'd like to hit 175. We'll see. (I was 9 birds over... horray!)
--  1/2 DONE This week's goal will be to get my life list to 300 and my seen list up to 195. Did not get my life list to 300. Didn't leave the county this week.
--  Finally completed last week's goal.
--  DONE! This weeks goal (to Feb 14) is to get to 206 seen birds, including at least one owl (heard or seen for owl), and add at least one life bird.
 
This year's goal: Get life list to 400, see 365 different birds this year, and travel to at least three other states. The last part is the hardest for me.
 
Seen/heard: 287 (one is under discussion)
To go: 78

If that tree is in your yard, spread some suet on it and he will be back every day :)

oh my goodness you got some fantastic shots. I had a brown creeper last fall and all I could get were brown streaky blob pics. I'm so jealous. :P

Indications of the existence of Brown Creepers are just one big conspiracy plot against me...

Great shots! I've only ever seen one here and it was much too fast for me to even catch him in the viewfinder. :P

I'd rather be birding.
