The bottom one is a Tufted Titmouse. Not sure what the one above it is. Great shots though.

White-breasted Nuthatch is the other bird needing an ID.

Thanks. I found the other in a book at B&N a bit ago. It's a White Breasted Nuthatch. Learning continues....:cool:

You just beat me to it. Thanks for the confirmation, though.:cool:

The peanuts have been a big hit for years now. I go through a 50lb bag in about a month. And that's along with a 40lb bag of black oil sunflower seeds.

Where are you getting 50lb bags of peanuts?

Feed store. They're called peanut pickups and are labelled "Not for human consumption." They're loose peanuts probably from some other manufacturing process. Unsalted and shelled.

Thanks, Peter. We finally got a day of sun so I could put the 400 5.6 to work. Now we have a snowstorm moving in. :confused:

I need to find some like that...all I can find are raw, in the shell peanuts in 25lb bags at Southern States.

I pay about $40 per 50lb bag. I've seen online prices as high as $80 per bag, most of which is shipping costs. The store I buy at is called Prairieland Feeds, but I've seen them at other feed stores as well. It snowed here last night, so the birds are in a tizzy this morning. I put out the peanut/sunflower mix just now and I bet there's at least 50 birds out there. Mix of cards and bluejays and my friend the red bellied WP.


Nice shots, Peter and JTF.
