I must have missed some.
I'm sure they'll turn up but what's that white stuff?

That's the 4 letter word that shall not be mentioned before it's time. We've had frost on the ground the last few mornings...

Too funny... nice capture... I do have a few of Flying Squirrels, but not flying ones... who knew there were flying chipmunks?
I used to know people who lived near Oro Station 30 years ago.
I've been here 38 years, was his name Bob by chance ?

I think Fall is prime time for bird photography.

Even the Starlings look good





And I can't resist a Phoebe

I don't have one decent shot of a Phoebe, I see them all the time, but they never stop in my yard.... so you're one up on me.
Nice images.

I see several that visit my yard on a regular basis, soon I'll have feeders out and be getting more...nice job on the Downy Norm, I rarely get a change to snap a shot of those.

Here are a few from my yard. All in the yard, not wild ones in the woods... ok wild, but limited to in the yard...

Hummingbird of course, I think they're about gone though



Young female Bluebird in our birdbath



I put a nesting box in the front yard for Tufted Titmouse, a pair of Prothonotary Warblers took it over...





This wren got in the house, my mother held it for a minute so I could get a picture



Summer Tanager, never did find his nest...



Immature Bluebird ion the nesting box in the back yard. I built two of these, both have been used the past 2 years. This one was inhabited the day after I hung it on the post...

Waxwings
Nice! It really is a challenge to get detail in the plumage.
