Coming home from a baseball game yesterday this bird let me within a dozen feet. I don't really like the lens because the sharpness is just not there but...not too bad because I was so close. The critters are definitely settling in. We have baby squirrels that only come out at night. The momma raccoon is bringing her four baby raccoons with her to the feeder and they are funny to watch. But they aren't quite as bold as just the momma by herself. I can't go out and talk with them. I'm not sure what kind of bird this is, I should ask my bride but t'is a little early yet.
