    Wonder if that's the same one I saw? I was at Jachovich earlier today getting some hose.

    I scared one off this morning in my undies. Not sure if it was the yelling or me in my undies but it ran off. Darn thing was chomping down on my $100/tree maples I planted last summer!

    The bird I'm trying to find out what they are.
    Males have a slightly orange breast.

    After the last snow, I was plowing, one flew into the shop.
    Then a bunch landed where I'd plowed down to the grass along the driveway.
    Not seen them around all winter.
    Wonder if they accidentilyy showed up in AK early.
    Wife ran to the store, got some bird seed & have been feeding them since.
    Seem to be getting more & more every day.
    Very skidish, can't get very close
    Was closer to the moose that i can get to the birds.

    The chickadees here will land on you while you are filling the bird feeder. Very friendly. I feed sunflower seed. Mixed seed gets tossed on the ground.

    We live in a wooded area and are visited frequently by wild critters. Our dogs help keep them a bit away from our house. I don't know how anything survives when there always seems to be something around that wants to eat the other ones.
