I love that man! He brings home the best goodies!
A larger thistle feeder, a peanut feeder and tons of bird food!
Goldfinches enjoying some thistle.

There he is, right there. See him?
Ah, that's better. A very pretty, if well-hidden sparrow - and a lifer for BirdCouple! This was Warren's 220th species seen in Maryland.
Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge, in Dorchester County on Maryland's Eastern Shore, is a really special place. It wasn't very birdy on Sunday, but we did see a Red-Tailed Hawk chase a Merlin off some carrion. Cool. Also, this turtle was neat:
I call the "to order" number on each catalog that travels to our address and ask to be taken off their mail list.
I thank the responsible companies that use recycled paper.
And, I tell the poor person who answered the phone about the remarkable Boreal Forest and how vital it is to birds and how this wilderness helps to mitigate the affects of global warming....
Perhaps word of the Boreal Forest bird freak will travel throughout all the world's call centers. The call centers will meet and discuss how inefficient my tirades make their operators.
All the call center operators will know about the threat to the Boreal Forest!
Call center operators will go on strike demanding that all catalogs and junk mail be made from recycled materials.
Or, maybe, all call center operators will demand training in processing only online orders. Catalogs will become extinct!
See! One person can make a difference. Now, off to make some phone calls....
