Birds

Don, The one you have in your post with the red on it's head and throut is what we call the purple finch . The one we call the house finch is the same looking bird but with no red . The scrub jay we call the bluejay . We have the Canada jay here ,it's called a camp bird or wisky jack . I must see if I can find a good book on the birds . When the X and I were together . I had 3 feeders and I couldn't believe how many different birds were coming to the feeders .There was one called ,if I remember right ,a red cross bill .Looked like the purple finch on;y a bit larger . I had a Baltamore Oreial in the tree . Looked like a piece of hunter orange cloth in the tree .Only the once .. There was a rose breasted gross beak . Saw that one a few times . Both are suposed to be kinda rare in our area , Lots of brown headed cow birds . I haven't seen any of those in quite a while

Was that a pine squirrel on top? I have some more stuff I did at different places on CD's I think. I'll drag them out this afternoon.
