Nice! Your cricket frog photo could almost fit in the "Where's Waldo" thread.

I'm so glad that they do!

The first time I remember seeing one was where I grew up in Western PA; my sister had put up a bluebird house even though we really didn't have the right habitat for them. A Carolina wren took up residence. I remember videotaping him, perched on top of the nestbox singing, after building the nest.

That "feel" is supposed to be my trademark. I'm glad you like it. You can trade out the frog if you like. Jeff still has the frog gracing his monitor. ~smile~

Jeff has good taste!!! I'm like him.... I'm still liking the frog. I think I'll keep him for another year or so. I'll go steal your wren when I'm ready for a change.

WOW... Thank YOU dapjwy.
I'm still in mywanta birch faze so my eye (OK both eyes )were drawn to them while in travel.

I think this months contest is moving along quite well...
Soooo many nice entries. Its nice to view what others have going on in their neck of the woods....The greenery is so refreshing to see while we're literally buried up to our knees in snow.

Here's photo #4 from me for Feb.; one of my favorite cheery bird pics. It's part of my rotating wallpaper on my computer. I caught this flock of cedar waxwings hanging out in a Shumard oak one morning in February 2009.

Nice to see those bright yellow bands on their tails.

Oooo, I had not heard of this before, NEWisc. Yes, indeed it's good to see the yellow and not orange tail plumage. Thanks so much for sharing.

I thought those might be your birches--too bad...but at least you have a beautiful picture to remember them...so you do have your birches in a way!
