Dave, looks as if you have a determined and persistent little guy or gal there.

It's not a bird that I feed, but I loved it! It's a Short Eared Owl perched in a Cottonwood tree branch near my home. They're very small birds. Taken with a 640mm lens at f4.

A very active day at my bird feeder. Suddenly today…Blue Jays, Flickers, Doves, Crows, and Finches have returned in substantial numbers. Don’t know what kept them away, but I suspect birds of prey that were once lingering nearby that have moved on, and the seed feeders have returned.

I had a little more activity today, still not much.
You can have some of ours - yesterday I counted 12 on the ground eating around the feeders. Saw a deer out there at 4am when I visited the little boys room.

No birds right now. There was a Redtail hawk sitting on our deck looking for a meal. He was too fast for me to get a picture.

We saw our Northern Harrier take a mourning dove off the picnic table. No idea where he went but at least the rest of the birds will have some peace for a couple of days.
