He sat still just long enough for me to get this photo. This Clarks Nutcraker likes to eat mice.

Oh if they like to eat mice can you send some of them to me in Chicago? Now that it's getting warmer I've seen them scurrying around my garden.


@Brooklyn Frank

Just in case you haven't seen it there's a good documentary on PBS about a Red Tailed Hawk the residents of NYC named Pale Male that was living near Woody Allen's apartment. It's really good and if you get a chance to see it and haven't already check it out.

Janey, is that snow on the ground or do I need my glasses changed? What a beautiful scene! I love how that little bird is tilting his head back. Looks like he's singing his heart out.

You caught him just right, outlined against a beautiful background!
It sure is hard to catch them sitting still most of the time!
Our rain has turned to snow within the last half hour.
That documentary that Mr. Brown Thumb mentioned is very interesting. Pale Male has quite a following!
That Cornell bird site is great, isn't it? We try to visit the Lab of Ornithology when we go down to Ithaca. It has some wonderful paths to walk and lots of birds. Fabulous place!

Well, this looks beautiful. Anything that eats mice is OK in my book

oh that is cool....having not seen one of those up my way i had to check out my bird books...they say they are a subalpine bird and like the higher altitude..hence i guess that is why you saw this guy...but they can be found here on the coast...I see they are part of the crow family and make similar sounds as the jays...similar antics...I will have to keep my ears tuned...the birds are returning in bounty this year....it has been a long winter....for the westcoast anyways....great photo...
