Sorry for your loss, Ellen. This has been a rough year.

I did not get a picture as I was driving on the interstate at the time, but a few weeks ago I saw a nearly all-white red-tailed hawk--did not know what it was at first. Evidently, there have been some in eastern Ohio for several decades. This gorgeous creature was pure white except for tan barring on the wings.

Thank you Rebek. This year is not getting any better with my Dad in the hospital during Christmas and not doing well.

That must have been a beautiful sight. Maybe you will be able to get a picture at some point

This month, on the 16 and the 17th, I had 19 species on the deck. Always have around 12 or more. I feed 3 or 4 though an open window, this is Bewick's wren.

If only I could see one and here you are hand feeding them. How fortunate you are.

Here are two others that I feed through an open window, its cold outside. A ruby crowned kinglet and a chickadee.
