TNDARLN BS: Birdwatching (84* d) RE: BS: Birdwatching 05 Dec 02


I've been enjoying the birds for years- one of my adulthood learning passions. Don't much care for lists, but I do love to watch the commotion around my feeders.

Favorite? No more beautiful creature/song on the planet than the eastern bluebird. And these hills are full of 'em!

Guest Don- I think that idiot who shared the gray squirrels with our Brit friends is related to the one that brought starlings over here!

Someone mentioned crows...back in the cb radio days, my Dad's "handle" was Crow Hunter. Anyone having trouble with crows in the cornfield would call him over. Daddy'd do a hoot owl call, and get the crows all stirred up. Or he'd do a crow call- their curiosity always got the best of 'em. Daddy was really into crow-psychology!

BTW- anyone here familiar with the houses/feeders designed/built by the "Bluebird Man" of Ringgold, GA? Though Mr. Sawyer died several years ago, his family has continued making these. Mr. S made/designed his "woodpecker lathe" to cut, ream out the log sections he used. Quite an operation....and supposedly sold by word of mouth all over the country.
