Hi,
I'm Jane and my Thorny said to come over to this forum and check it out. I'm the one with a web cam in a feeder in a window - thorny posted the link. Penny - thanks for checking it out.

I am new to birding, so gardening will not be far behind. My daughter is gardner and has worked at nursery/ crop farm for a decade -- So, she plants and I chat. I did plant a couple of blueberry shrubs in our oh, way too shady backyard this fall. I am interested in anything that grows without sun and that the birds want to eat.
Oh yeah, and do any of you need any moss - we could sell it like Astroturf.

I really look forward to getting to know you folks.

Hey Thorny,
It is very overcast and wet today. I am pleased the camera pictures are as good as they are. I think that bird might actually be an American Goldfinch. Did you just take that a little while ago, because if you did, I was outside taking that shot from the yard. I'll check my camera, do you have a time on that photos?

Cindy,
Hi Hi, so good to be here. I am sorry you can't se the camera. The camera does requires internet explorer and that downloaded activex driver. I told hubby is should be more univeral and he replied "it was only $110" At which point, I said....Gee I love it!

Weezie..thanks for the great welcome note. Thorny was the very few people that I knew I wanted to know when I when I joined the bird board four months ago! I hear Gailo is here and countrybum is joining.

I will be checking out the topics and hopefully jumping in. I will admit, I don't really have a green thumb. I just want others to make sure it looks good out there.

Thorny,
I think I have a picture of that guy at the same time from outside. It was at 12:22est. Hey, I am trying to use photobucket. How do I resize - the photo is huge. I will be off trying to figure that out.

Jane, the time I took that photo was 11:24 AM EST today. That little bird stayed at your feeder for quite some time. And beeing an overcast damp day, the squirrels are out in force. When I was a squirrel hunter this was the type of day would dream about for the best hunting. Squirrels love this kind of weather.

I thought you were an hour behind me, shucks. Anyway, I think you are right. It is indeed a house finch. A funny, all wet female. Sorry, my bad!

Hey Penny,
Thanks... but never say great picture to a person possessed with their backyard birds and a sony camera. I could be like a new grandmother and show pictures all day. I am very proud of my little friends outside.
This is one of my favorite pictures. A male house finch on a rainy day.

That's the girl! she has a REALLY Large BEAK!

I am in Central time and am 1 hour behind you, Jane. I just adjusted the time of my photo to your time zone. Your picture shows much more detail and confirms that it IS a House Finch with a mutantly LARGE snozz.

Jane, do you have the Black-Capped Chickadee, the Carolina Chickadee, or both? We only have the Carolina Chickadee here in Tennessee.

That APPEARS to be the Black-Capped Chickadee. The differences between the two species are VERY slight.

Thorny, that means it's the same bird at the same time. Me from the backyard and you on the camera. For me, the color is all of, I thought it was the winter brown of the goldfinch, but she must have just been all wet.
Pretty cool us taking pictures at the same time.

You gotta love those Canadians....Thorny, Canadians have really good birding, right?
