And this is ALL in our back yard! Hilarious!

Well, 80%, anyway...five of the bird pics are from the feeder at the school library...the red "squirrel-proof" feeder as opposed to our red barn and suet feeders.

Love the winter birds. We have all of those as well. Great shots. Not so fond of the squirrels but they are clever.

I am a little jealous of your cardinals, or at least your ability to photograph them. We see one every once in a blue moon but by the time I can find the camera it is gone. Blue Jays are more common around here, but same problem with the photos. I'm better off just enjoying the moment watching them. Great shots.

Wonderful pictures, Dr. M.

I read recently about a monkey that doesn't use his tail for grasping but just for balance. I think the squirrels you show use theirs the same way.
