"Actually, Paul, I, along with a lot of others, look forward to the upcoming months. October, November and December offer high potential for various 'rare to us' bird species to show up."

"The Co-Op and Shur Gain are big seed producers, they might be willing?  Another avenue is something like BassPro, they do more then just hunting gear, or Can Tire."

"I agree with you, Paul and Kitty.  I don't believe we should be encouraging minors to hunt and it certainly isn't a good day for ducks  :("

"not to argue Ralph, but when I lived in Ontario, we used to see alot of Cattle Egrets hanging out down near Point Pelee, Rondeau Prov Park, and Long Point Prov Park.  They were in the fresh water marshes."

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.
