    That was very enjoyable Lou! In #4547 there is a large excavation in progress, did they use that area?
  2. Thanks for looking Andy and if you think that hole is large you should see that tree now, unbelievable, I don't know what holds it up but when it goes so does my electric. It's a good 100 feet tall and about 18 inch Diameter. No they do not use the cavity for nesting dust drilling practice.:biggrin::biggrin:
  3. Nice set Lou! sure wish I was in your back yard!

    Lets have a party in Lou's back yard.
    Those are great.

    There is a pair around here. Elusive devils.When one landed on the pole outside my apt on the third floor, I was down stairs with no camera.
    I really cursed him. I called him everthing but a bird.
    I have two bad shots of one.
    Could have been a full frame, sun in the right place ,late after noon and I would have been looking east.
  5. Thanks Ray for the long look. I know 40 is a lot to look at but I have so many of this pair and I just can't place any more than I have as it is proberly longer than it should be now.

    Very nice set Lou. They don't let you get close around here.
  7. Well Gale consider that a lesson learned. I don't even go to my burn barrell with out a camera:wink::wink: I do always carry one in the wagon though and that is the best way I know of to catch a red tail. Some of my best red tails are from my wagon. Thanks for taking the time to look at 40 slides as that is a lot but you should see the one I have on large marshbirds:biggrin:

  8. Love this bird's "call". . . . we must have a nest not too far away since I have heard them off and on since Spring but seen them only once in my yard this year. . .this is a very elusive bird out this way and on my short list to shoot. . . great shots.
  9. Thanks Frank as I know it is a long slide show. Most of these I have taken from a blind in a window of my house. Being a widower and living as I feel like I can create things most wifes would leave you for with all your money:biggrin:
  10. Thanks for the long look Mr. Ricco. Yes they do have a sweet talking voice as I also hear them a lot as this pair is around me just about all year banging on trees that could be used for a drum but I love it.
