  1. LOL!

    Snowbirds indeed! Peregrine falcons wintering in downtown San Antonio from Canada and Minneapolis https://www.expressnews.com/news/local/article/Peregrine-falcons-wintering-downtown-from-Canada-12647930.php?utm_campaign=mysa&utm_source=article&utm_medium=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.mysanantonio.com%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Farticle%2FMystery-of-falcons-wintering-downtown-is-solved-12648889.php

  3. common raven? Texas 78070 on 2/15/2018

    Well, if you want to be precise, my observation post is 40 minutes north of the Alamo and five miles west of Canyon Lake, two miles south of the Guadalupe River, and seventeen miles south of the Twin Sisters peaks viewed from my upper deck.
  4. LOL!

    "This will not do. A room temperature martini served by a bartender with a room temperature IQ."
  5. LOL!

    I think he is an agent and patient of the 320 lb. client who bought a chiropractic clinic after failing to get picked up in the NFL draft!
  6. Huge black bird. Rough throat. I never really had an unobstructed view. The call sounded like a raven's. Very loud. The first pic has a cedar waxwing on the left for size comparison.
  7. Bringing in as much wildlife as possible?

    House for a barred owl. Here is one I recently completed for a barred owl. I heard her hooting "Who cooks for you?" last autumn but I never got a pic. The owl house was constructed to a plan published by the Cornell University Lab of Ornithology. It uses half of one four foot by eight foot sheet of 3/4 inch plywood. That means it seems to weigh a ton when you are hoisting it in one hand over your head while you are perched on the end of a fifteen foot extension ladder and wielding a hammer in your other hand. My wife was holding the ladder for me. I was terrified by the possibility that I could drop the bird house on her head. That woman could probably survive a blow to the head. I could not expect to survive her release from the hospital!

  9. Obviously a male northern cardinal. Golden fronted woodpecker? The eye stripe confuses me on the sparrow in flight.
  10. LOL!

  11. LOL!

    Lots of luck!
  12. LOL!

    The Maharishi is still teaching levitation. Six years of study and a six figure tuition will enable you to bounce off your butt on an exercise mat!
  13. You've been mooned!

    Damned paparazzi!

    Thank you, bird rescue. Sometimes I get lucky.
  15. Cedar waxwing? Texas 78070 2-3-2018

    Thanks, ya'll. I've seen three flocks and probably more than a hundred of the critters today. This pic is a close-up from a nearer tree.
