"part of the difficulting with waiting to see if you have an infected bird is that we don't watch our feeders every minute of the day.  But I guess it comes down to the fact of why do you feed the birds."

"I have photo's of another mammal which first  is a seal, it wasn't in the exact same spot but close. The next one is hard to see , it was beginning to submerge just as I took the photo, you can just barely see the fin."

"I am definitely not an expert, but the lower jaw seems to extend to far for a Basking Shark. Having said that, I don't know what it is. My first impression was Grey Seal, but that now appears to be incorrect. It could be something more rare.…"

I haven't seen a Chipping Sparrow yet this year...lots of America Tree though.

I had some Evening Grosbeaks in my yard today for the first time in a couple of years....they must have followed me from your place! lol. But seriously, I believe I've seen more of them in the last 5 months then what I've seen over the past 5 years...maybe they're making a come back or I've just be in the right spot at the right time.
