Welcome Tammie! I just took a quick look at your images. (I'm trying to get my laundry dome before tonight's Live Chat) Awesome Ruffed Grouse! The poplar image should be a Christmas card and the one with the frozen lake reminded me of home when my salt water river freezes over. Anyone else who has a moment,check out Tammie's images by clicking on the little www thingie at the bottom of any of her posts.

Hi Tammie

Loved your shots of the Ruffed Grouse and Pileated Woodpeckers! And what I wouldn't do to have Pine Grosbeaks at my feeder! I used to see them all the time (I'm from the Rocky Mountain region) but now I live in New England where they are irruptive winter visitors and quite unpredictable.

BTW: your picture labeled "unknown sparrow" december 7 03 is an immature White-crowned Sparrow.

HI and thanks for the warm welcome. :)

I actually knew that about that particular bird but I guess I forgot to change the label on it. Thanks for the reminder.

We get the ruffed grouse and pileated regularly at our cottage, an hour from here. We have a pair of pileateds in the spring but otherwise, normally only see the male. I have pine grosbeaks all winter, from October to May every year. They are my #1 favourite feeder visitor. They are so sweet and photogenic!

Happy Holidays!

Welcome Starzz! I love Canada! We vacation on PEI in summer and Montreal in other seasons. Now if my Bruins could only beat their hockey teams.....or any team for that matter :roll:

Glad to see your face in the place.
