Bruce,

Occasionally, one drops by our abode for a visit.

They're fairly common in the Ozarks. They're also quite large - for birds - and when one hammers on a tree you can't miss him. Large and noisy!



Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm a busy man. I have a railroad to run.

Hey we get a WoodPecker like that in our backyard, but his feathers are a Black and White striped. Is there a Standard in the Military??? When I was in it seemed like there was a bunch of Overweighters innn. Has it changed??????? Kevin

Found these four in my backyard two weeks ago while doing yard work.



As you think, so will you be.

Allen, as a matter of fact they do. From left to right they are Smokey, Peanut, Skylar and Athena. There's talk about keeping Peanut but I haven't been sold on that idea yet. We already have two cats and 5 kids. Not sure if I can deal with another.

As you think, so will you be.

Who's this lurking in the Bushes? It's Mrs Sparrowhawk who's come to Jack's Diner for her breakfast! She was plucking a blackbird that she'd caught. Taken this morning in my back garden in Scotland

George has had all kinds of visitors to the F&SM over the years. This little guy seems to be checking out the Tom Yorke engine house for his new home.

That is actually a really cool photo, Rich. However, cute little varmits like that are still varmits, and that chipmunk could cause some serious damage to a layout!

Chipmunk thought: Gee, this wood looks tasty, I think I'll just have a nibble on the corner of this building here...

Chuck - we came to the conclusion that she was, perhaps, a youngster - possibly newly thrown out of the nest, and totally un-fazed by people. We were in and out all day and she really wasn't bothered. She plucked and ate the Blackbird, moved over to the corner of the garden, and sat around for 3 hours. She then dived back into the bushes and caught a late lunch, which she dealt with in the same way. She then sat around till about 7pm, had a go at catching supper(and missed) and got chased out of the garden by a Jackdaw. We haven't seen her since.
