Great Blue Heron with wings spread. October 4th, 2020 at Lake Nevin in Bernheim Research Forest and Arboretum just south of Louisville, Kentucky.

I wrote a blog post about some neat things you can do with RSS, including some "unadvertised" feeds you might not know about.

Here in Kentucky, we have 7 types of woodpeckers:

Downy Woodpecker
Hairy Woodpecker
Red-bellied Woodpecker
Red-headed Woodpecker
Pileated Woodpecker
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker
Northern Flicker

When a birder spots one of the less common woodpeckers, you might hear them say they want to "try for a seven woodpecker day", meaning they want to attempt to see all seven species in a single day.

I nearly fell out of my chair when I spotted my first Pileated Woodpecker (female) in my backyard. Only moments later I spotted a Brown Creeper for the second time in my backyard. I love having my desk by the window. 🐦

I got my first taste of 110vac in a while... Wiring 3-way switches is tricky!

I told my Dad yesterday: "A lot of computer stuff involves computers lying to other computers"

My photos taught me I saw a bunch of Palm Warblers this fall migration before I knew what they were.

Guess what? 

Sparrow butt!

Sorry.

Not sure if they are Field Sparrows or Chipping Sparrows.

Not really great photos, but at least you can see why it's called a Yellow-rumped Warbler

A cold but beautiful morning. Not many people at the park so probably more birds. This is one of my favorite spots. Highlights: Dark-eyed Junco, Northern Flicker, Eastern Towhee, Eastern Phoebe, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Great Blue Heron, and a bunch of White-throated Sparrows.
