I had a great birdwatching day today. I cannot believe I got such good photos of the little warbler. They are elusive. I tried to get his mate, but she would not sit still. They were enjoying the birch trees.

I have been happy to host 3 Goldfinches. They hang out with the Pine Siskins.
I have yet to identify this guy. I have an e-mail in to a great South Dakota bird identification web-site my Aunt told me about:http://sdakotabirds.com/index.html I've been trying to identify this bird for the last 4 years. Maybe this will be the year.
|Black Headed Grosbeak|
My Grosbeaks are back. I love watching them. They are nicer than their cousin's the Evening Grosbeaks. Those birds are thugs. They come in and totally take over a feeder. The first year I was here I called them the Goon Squad.
You can tell when it is too cold or wet to do anything. I turn to the birds to keep me occupied. Today was a good birdwatching day. I was so happy to get photos. I'm usually not a patient woman, but today patience paid off.
My thoughts go out to all who have been hit by tornados. I'm glad the Little Red Farmhouse still stands.
