Birding must be a welcome diversion from the insanity that is going on all around your country at the moment. Keep them coming!

Yes, @Dave Williams Things here are Not Good, so birding is a great distraction. Hopefully I have more birds this weekend!

It's been snowing here constantly, so I haven't been able to do much birding except from my window. Here's the very cold hawk sitting in the snow.

I blinked and now it is somehow October? How did this happen? I don't know if I'll be able to catch up, but I hope to at least see how everyone else is doing!
