And I've been neglectful of my birdly posting here, so here are some shots from this fall:

A fall chestnut-sided warbler:

We were flush with Common yellowthroats this year. Here's one from September, foraging for insects:

The cistern area was very popular for bathing this fall. Even the warblers were coming to it. This is a Nashville warbler:

For the very first time we hosted a nesting pair of house wrens. Dang, they're so much fun to watch!

Also lots of Eastern towhees, white-throated sparrows and thrushes (the one in the shot is a Swainson's thrush).

Hazel, I'm sorry taht with renos, vet visits and other stuff, this is the first chance I've had to check out your photos. The woodcock is neat. I've never seen one of those.
And I like the ones of the titmouse. He looks kind of like a small gray cardinal with the crest.

I hope nothing too serious with the vet visits!

I wish I could post a video a friend of mine put on FB. It's of a woodcock doing his bobbing walk, looking for food! It's a hoot!!

Are you gonna post before and after pics of your renos?

This is more a Canadian bird than a Wisconsin bird, but she came to visit me. She's about 250 - 300 miles out of normal range. Wish she'd brought the Mr. with her, but alas, she appears to be alone.

This is a female Pine grosbeak:

I hope she sticks around a while, but probably she'll only be here a few more days and then cut out for someplace else...

Thankfully, the vet visits were just annual vaccines/checkups, but the first one caught an ear infection that needed treatment and a follow up to ensure the medication worked.
the renos...Um, it's my parents house, I'm not sure they want pictures on the internet, but I can probably get away with pics of the four-legs inspecting the new fixtures and clutter created by emptying an entire room.
I like your grosbeak. I'll have to look up that species to see what the male looks like. I'm familiar with the rosy breasted grosbeak, but not the pine grosbeak. There are so many species out there!

Oh, no prob about the pics. I understand not wanting too much info out there

I think I saw a thread about inspection crews, so I suspect I'll be seeing your guys in action when I get to it!

Glad the vet visits weren't too serious!

The male pine grosbeak looks like the fem, only he's a pinkish raspberry color. Very handsome!

TJTwitter has always been a favourite of mine and going to bump in back into today's posts.

While sitting in my make-shift Summer Phlox and Rose Bush Blind, I was able to capture the flight of these little ones coming in for a landing and an evening snack.
