Bird activity is high this morning, cloudy skies and in the low 20s out there. I worked at two jobs this week, one I saw a Brown Creeper out the window. The other job has a feeder right outside where I'm working, it had 2 Pine Siskins and a Brown Nuthatch on it. Not sure if we have ever had a Brown Nuthatch here before, they like lots of Lobolly Pines. I can see 4 Lobollys out the window here in the neighbors forest, a few years ago the huge property behind them had most of the Lobollys timbered.
The Pine Warbler has been to the suet three times already this morning! I heard it calling a few minutes ago when I was outside, the call can be heard here. In 12 years of living here I have never seen more than one Pine Warbler at the feeders. BTW their favorite habitat is Lobolly Pines.
My blog got a fair number of hits this week linked from a tattoo design site. I went to check it out and found you had to pay to subscribe to enter the site. I wrote them and hope they will take down the link to my site. I have a lot of butterfly and dragonfly photos here, I don't mind if someone writes me asking permission to use my images for a tattoo. Charging them to see my images/pages it not at all agreeable to me.
