    Ok, I'll attempt to participate. My bird attracting skills are as bad as my fish keeping abilities. Just put up the seed feeder and nectar feeder in the back of the closed in portion of my back yard. Birds are definitely emptying the feeders of their contents.. I just can't get a picture of it. I can however, get a photo of the armies of ants carrying away spilled seed to their underground desert burrows. . But seriously, I will try to get actual fotos soon.

    I love the privacy of that place. It looks like a peaceful spot. What's in the brick thing in the middle?

    The guys at the hawk watch were able to tell just by flight patterns and how well they flew into the wind, and that was at a great distance. Some of these hawk counters are really good at identifying what's going by.

    Heres another tough one to call..... By its shear size and how it was flying over the marshes I am pretty sure its an immature Northern Harrier or a bashful adult female.

    Last one and probably my best shot of the week even though its a crummy picture. This is a bird I have heard hundreds of times on hikes but rarely have I seen it. I did not expect to see it on a small spit of land surrounded by ocean and marsh. Its more a deep woods bird.

    Meet Mr. Oven Bird..

    hear its calls here,,, https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/Ovenbird/sounds


    Its just a really cool little woodland bird. I wish I had more time to photo it but a runner/dog combo spooked it.
