I like birds too, Greg. Our place has become quite a bird sanctuary!

A very pretty pair of swallows have nested over my bedroom window, I'm filling up the H-bird feeders twice a day now as there are usually 20-30 of them buzzing around them at any time... And the baby robins & sparrows are fledging. The other day, one landed on the porch banister and allowed me to pet him for a long time before his mother came and yelled at him. At Wal-mart a couple of days ago, a baby sparrow landed on my van door in the open window and sat there chirping.

I guess they must be able to tell that I like them.

Here's a pic of 2 of my "pals"

(Have you tried looking at eagles on Sauvie's Island - that's where I used to go to watch them. Some were very close...)

Which fledge? The Robin? I have those too, and also bluejays. Something I learnd this yr. I always thought all bird seeds were similar. No their not. I had a finch seed, and the jays were not interested, but the finches came out of the woodwork. Now I have a different one and the finches are gone.
Haven't been to the Island yet.

It was a fledgling robin on the porch bannister that I was petting.

I used to have birds of all kinds - finch, canary, parrot, cockateil, etc. The seeds are different mixes depending on the shape of the bill and what the it is designed to do...

I didn't learn this today, but I remembered it from a while ago.

If you're trying to learn how to control the mouse better, try this:

lay a sheet of plastic wrap over a picture in a kids coloring book (neat line drawings but you can use whatever you want) Trace the picture on the plastic wrap and then take the wrap and "cling" it to the monitor. Now trace the lines with the mouse.

For those of you with bored kids around, it's something to keep them busy and entertained for a while.
