I am guessing the Dutch pronounce Robin with the emphasis on the Ro, bin being subtler. Well, at least it is a guess?

Good morning friends.

Elle, Thanks for the Klok baby news. Happy days with a new grandson for Anneke & Ruud's family. What an appropriate name for the nature lovers. :)

Carolyn, I looked up the pronunciation of Robin in Dutch and you're correct. :)

What great s'caps, Iona ! So good to see them again.
I see you are getting more snow this morning.

Lovely pics of big E & little Slim, JuD. What a pair. :love:
The snow is beautiful.

The practice thread is very helpful, Scott. I tinkered with the ideas, which leads me to more to figure out on my camera. :)

Cold in BC, but showing no snow falling on the map. You look clear for now wind, you too Carolyn. Clouds & high chance of rain here.

:bye 1:

Good Morning All,

Iona my heart goes out to you, two loses in such a short time. I wish I could wrap you in my arms and make it better. :brknhrt: :huggie:

Elle - love your turkman, he is so much like my porter.

I had a very interesting visitor this weekend. I had a juvenile pileated woodpecker feeding from my suit feeder this weekend. He was small, but definitely pileated. I have never seen one of them at my feeders before. My suit feeder is especially made for woodpeckers, it has a long wooden extension for them to rest their tails against. He stayed about 6-8 minutes.

We had cold weather over the weekend, but not too wet. But tomorrow we have a potential for ice and snow - bluck :cold1:

Hugs all around,
:grhug:

Windy: Are you sure it wasn't a Downy Woodpecker?
Yes Porter and Turkeyman are alike. :)

Iona: I expressed my condolences on FB and will do so here as well. It is hard to believe and a devastating loss of such a young spark. My condolences to you and your family. No words suffice.

Elle - certain it was not a downy or a red breasted woodpecker, I get lots of those. It definitely had the pileated markings and crest, and was larger than a downy and slightly bigger than the red breasted. Wish I could have got a picture. I was pretty shocked myself and took out the binoculars to get a closer look. I guess the fellow was just hungry enough to chance it. He didn't look to be in poor health from what I could see.

Hugs all,

Evening Luvs,

Dearest Iona,
holding you close in thoughts and blessings prayers.
Thanks for the nest visit Happiness.

Elle&Ian, enjoy, and bring us some pics please. :)

Wind, I'm now in pileated country, so more to learn for me and looking forward to it. I'm pleased to live in my local one's territory.

I've also had a red bellied stopping by the yard.

Every day i see/hear the red shouldered hawk. Yesterday it was being harassed by a crow and stopped on a limb about 10 yards above my back porch; got a good look. I also read hawks and crows nest in proximity to each other for the benefit each offers. A love/hate/tolerate relation.

:rh: the poem for Iona & loved ones, Carolyn.

Scott,
the BBu's seem to hit home often. :)
:ty:
