Awesome Catches there brother. Patience is key for sure.
This picture is not as good as yours but hey its a phone. Went out and sat in a chair and looked up and there this little guy was. So I went and grabbed the old phone.
Had to compress it so I hope it turns out.
Here he is about 2 weeks earlier... when Jim took him out of the hallway and put him under a bush to hide him from the kids and the hawks.... later on he disappeared, but while he was sitting under the bush he had positioned himself so he could see the Apple tree.
Beautiful pictures Abdicate! Thanks for adding to the thread
And thanks Annie for being the originator of the thread
Guessing this is either a red crossbill (last photo below) or a white winged crossbill male looking in my friend's window. She lives in New Hampshire where they are often seen. The window is from her office in a 1882 Victorian House (seen in the photos) she is living in and remodeling into a bed/breakfast there. I sent her the birdbath in the first photo as a housewarming gift. She said after his bath the little bird came to the window to say "hello."
Yep, these are my pics, which I really enjoyed taking. However, transferring them to a website, and shrinking them, not so much I consider myself to be 'technically challenged'. I know I managed to shrink them, but I'm not quite sure how I managed to do it....
