At first we thought the squirrels were cute. Now we are not so sure

Female Common Merganser and Two Males

It looks like the freezing to death paid off. What camera are you using or are you digiscoping? Hope the Goldeneye comes back.

Happy Loving Couple and a New Duck, The Common Goldeneye







There was a lot of excitement this morning. Mike usually spots new ducks first, but today Chris gave the "new duck" alert. We were quick to team up with the binoculars, field guide, and camera to try and identify and photograph her as a Common Goldeneye. She didn't stay as long as we would have liked, because she seemed to get frightened off by a woman who feeds the geese. She didn't come back at all during the day, but we're hoping she makes a visit again tomorrow. After she left, though, is when Chris spotted the happy little Hooded Merganser couple out there again, and who can resist photographing such a cooperative subject, so here they are again. Late this afternoon a female common merganser was out there too, but no pictures came out good enough.

Northern Cardinal




Isn't she a cutie! She sat outside the bedroom window singing until I stopped what I was doing to have a look.
