Beautiful shot!

I just did an image search...and it sure looks like a meadow lark. I'd love to attract them here.

Actually, I believe that that's a squirrel.

I almost went there...but my often-absent censor was actually on duty for a change.

...Don't see yourself out...it seems you just got back.

Squirrel? And I thought these visitors to my feeders were the rare long-tailed grey seed-stealer birds, never before described!

Only 2?

Actually, I see almost as many squirrels as birds some days...it is a good thing for them that they are cute and furry and don't look like rats. Why do they prefer my birdseed when there are still thousands of acorns on the floor of my woods???? I know there are birds somewhere in their DNA!

Back when I lived on the east coast I had dozens of squirrels sometimes but now they occasional squirrel that wonders up from the wood lot is a treat to see. Once I get this property filled out a bit more I'm sure that will change.
