    That will be the occasion of my next visit to the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel. My previous visit was so deathly crowded, I ain't going again during normal tourist times.

    This cold weather has usher in several flocks of evening grosbeaks across NC. I counted six at my feeders today, gorging on sunflower seeds.

    I am currently reading The Snow Geese by William Fiennes. Its a travelogue/memoire about the author after he recovers from a major illness and decides to follow the snow goose migration from Texas to the Arctic.

    So far so good.

    Here's a White Crowned Sparrow looking to score some seeds in the snow this morning...

    Very cool find for me. I did not think they came this far north or inland in the U.S. (conjunction of the coastal plain and the beginning of the Piedmont, along the Savannah River). That was likely in November too IIRC.

    Very cool pics. I have found that if I edit pics from my iphone, like maybe crop off just a little of the top or bottom, that they seem to load properly on here. I'm not saying it works 100% but more often than not.

    I have seen them near Shallote, in the Green Swamp below Lake Waccamaw.. Very common there.

    Not to mention the female cardinal in the background.

    Nice catch! The cardinals have been out in force the past week or two. It is not uncommon for me to see a dozen at a time at and around the feeders these days.

    Also saw this Pine Warbler yesterday...

    Got this Cooper's Hawk after it tried to terrorize the birds at my feeder earlier this week.

    Sharp-shinned hawk? Small head, coarse brown streaks. But, of course, size matters -- sharp-shinned are smaller.

    Yeah Coopers and Sharpies look very similar but size is the main difference. This one was big, not quite as large as a Red Shoulder but definitely bigger than a Sharp Shinned.

    Y'all might enjoy some of the HD On Tap wildlife livestreams.

    https://hdontap.com/

    There are a couple trained on eagles' nests in Pennsylvania. Eagle is on the nest in the one below as of this posting.

    They've also got some in owl boxes, at feeders, in migratory destinations for snow geese, sand hill cranes and other species. Obviously, some of these are only interesting and active during certain times of year.

    They also have mammal stuff. Pffft.

    I've been seeing bluebirds again recently, after we failed to get them to nest in our yard last year because we put up two houses too close together.
    I took down the oldest of the feeders last fall, so now we have only one, and it's a nice one. Really hoping that the bluebirds will choose our yard!
