Wow so close on the Downy (or Hairy??), you are blessed with both. We only
get the Downy. Did you use the doghouse blind? I can't find mine at the moment.

I bet you all were worried about me and NO Cardinal shots :)
This one again with the ancient 28-300mm and a huge crop at that.
This is him watching me put out the buffet lunch for him and all his friends.
As I was feeding the little birds the hawk flew over with a stick in his mouth
so we know what that means!

Hey MedicineMan, He's a Hairy, Although Mr Downy was right there, I have three of them.. The two adults and last year's juvi. I hate to say because I think people think i'm on glue but.... I just walk out and shoot them they don't give a hoot i'm there. I know just Jeff goin off again lol. If I ever save enough pop bottle money I'll buy a gopro and start making video's

Mr Downy I know its hard to tell but he's 1/3 the size
