I had a yellow-rump that visited my feeders all winter a couple of years ago. It picked through all the seed in order to snatch tiny cubes of dried papaya.

Holy cow! Zillions of replies and on Christmas eve, yet. Thank you Michael and Keith and Kevin and William and John and Yvonne and Charlotte and Edge and Karin.



I have gone back and looked more closely at the Northern Flicker. I do see some photos of it that look like the bird that I saw today.



Candy has fun with the binoculars she got for chanukah. I found an old, manual focus 500mm lens for my camera. With all that glass, only the cold weather is chasing us indoors. We are both looking forward to spending more time birding together. It's really cool that in 30 minutes at Creve Coeur Lake, I found seven species. I can't identify them when I see them but Candy and I spend time with the photos after we get home and it's fun to figure out what's what.



Cheers,

Hello,



My wife and I are new to birding and having way too much fun. We are unsure about a couple of the birds that I saw today at Creve Coeur Lake and I hope that you can help.



First up is a bird that I think might be a Yellow-Rumped Warbler: https://gallery.wonderart.us/Animals/Wild-Birds/Yellow-Rumped-Warbler/

From what I have read, it is rare in Missouri in December so I am hesitant to say for sure that I saw a YRWA.



Next is a complete mystery: https://gallery.wonderart.us/Animals/Wild-Birds/Mystery-Bird/

None of the woodpecker pictures in any of the books or websites that I have found show any spots on the underside so I am completely baffled by this one.



Thanks much,

-- Art Z.
