Thanks Ron, the colour is all but gone from around here. What is left is moving to the rusty tones

Cool. I had a blue jay at my feeder two days ago. He was only there for a few seconds late in the day. I was hoping he'd return but no luck so far. They're very rare around here.

Thanks Sandy, This guy followed me in and out of a trail to some ponds I was at daily for the last couple weeks. of course the peanuts my wife was feeding him every 50 yards may have been the reason. lol
