Joan I noticed your question. I will research that topic for you.

Maybe I can make a discussion about it.

Thanks so much for your questions. I'm here to help.

I just had to watch that video again.

Makes me smile.

Thanks so very much Sentient - that is.

Thanks so very much for that video.

More birds and  cats together.  Or baby ducks and kittens.

The Whooping Crane festival is in Port Aransas, TX (Mustang Island,TX) in the Spring.

Thanks, Steph.  Where is the Whooping Crane festival?  Here are some storks fighting over something to eat.  But I call it "Stork Rugby."

Thanks Carl for the Sandhill Cranes picture! So beautiful!
Can't wait to see more!
I'm going to the Whooping Crane festival in the spring!
I'm looking to buy a new birding scope - I've been looking online.
Hopefully I can get some good pictures.

Cornell Lab - Winter Bird Feeding

Can anyone recommend their favorite sunflower seed feeder? What shape do you prefer? How do you clean them?

Comment by Karl Ford on November 16, 2012 at 12:46pm

Thanks, Steph.  But like I said, I take pix of birds.  Don't necessarily know a lot about them.  Here are two Sandhill Cranes taking a break, which you don't often see them do at the same time.  Just like when they eat, one usually keeps watch.  The one with his eye open is watching me trying to get close.  I titled it, "Insomnia."  Sandhills are protected here in FL, and they walk around like they own the place. More later!  Karl
