That is just so cute Cal but what is it????

LOL! Very funny pic, Cal! According to the look on it's face, you were way to intrusive.

Cute Cal, were you heading for a swim?

Hi Dianne, I'm not sure what he is. I'll have to check the books when I get home from work.

Not to worry Norrel I wasn't nearly as close as it appears. I used my zoom plus a major crop on the photo. I wasn't close enough to scare him away.

It's probably still a bit cold for a swim Guy, gosh I haven't been for a swim in a lake for years. I guess its time.

That's cuz you're so cute! thanks for the visit n1w

Have you checked the books yet? This is so cool!

Well done!

lol, steve. Nope - the poor little thing will now be harassed at all hours of the day by all of us!

Cal - here's a link to the Tree Swallow page on a bird ID site. I'm pretty sure that's what this is - they live all over North America, and do nest in tree boxes. They're actually pretty chipper little things. Give them a ready supply of bugs, and they're there! There are loads of them at Horn Pond, zooming around overhead, and especially in the evenings.

And for the non-internet-connection challenged, check out some of the various video links on that page. There are really great live web-cams from various nest boxes, including a young barn owl.

That sure looks like a toilet seat, is this a bird outhouse?

Cal Kimola Brown on June 8, 2009

You got it Kamaly that's absolutely right. He's a tree swallow. Thanks for the link, I don't think I would have recognized him in my bird book. the photo is no where near as clear as this one.

Considering she's crapping down the side of her house it appears the owner made her a nice little seatGuy, I'm sure you would have done the same. I'm not sure if its helping though.

She had other company Steve, this was a bird residential area, there where 4 houses but this is the only one that came out to see who was visiting.

Thanks Jean and as you can see Kamaly took care of my home work. LOL.

When I looked at the thumbnail I was with Guy until looking closer. Cute bird Cal.

D.R.Lamont on June 9, 2009

I was wondering if this is the place I saw listed in the paper with the room for rent?

Cal Kimola Brown on June 10, 2009

Thanks Marbiz

Well it's already taken Don, this tenant couldn't wait, a family was on it's way. LOL.
