I wasn't that impressed with their website. My local library had so much more.

I have wood thrushes today. I don't usually get those in my backyard (although they were common at my parents's place in Montgomery County). This hot and dry weather we've been having may have made the birds look outside their normal zone for food and water.

I have had a Brown Thrasher the last two days also. I don't think they are very common around here either. I was wondering the same thing alleycat, if they are starting to go outside their normal area for food.
Well, if that IS the case, I have a bunch of food and I will keep to two bird baths full, they can all come here.

The Carolina Wrens have come back. I still don't think I've seen a Tufted Titmouse lately. I usually have several around.

The tufted titmouses (mice?) came to my house!

My book said something about brown thrashers changing their territory due to development.

Absolutely wonderful posts! I am soooooooo jealous! We finally bought a home, and one of the first things we will get going are bird feeders...you guys are awesome and fun to learn from! We had lots of hummingbirds in our backyard in CA. I swear they soon know who belongs and who the visitors are! They were really fascinating, especially when they dive-bombed through the water fountain while I sat out there enjoying every minute of their antics. They also have a stern sound when they don't like something you are doing, or want their feed changed. No one can tell me animals don't talk! We have already seen so many beautiful birds here in Oak Ridge -- LOVE IT! Well, except for the very noisy whip-o-will who definitely alerts us that daylight is approaching, like it or not.

Still trying to figure out most of the birds, any recommendations for a good, basic "bird book" we can carry around w/us? Saw my first fireflies this week -- sooooooo cooooooooool! Trying to figure out how to get good pictures of them to share w/our grandchildren...can't wait for them to experience them firsthand with us!

Either the Peterson's or Audubon field guides to birds of the eastern United State are good. I like Peterson's a little more myself.

I have had the Audubon bird book for many years and I just recently purchased the National Geographic field guide to the birds of North America that is really good too.

Hiknapster,

Do you still want a trumpet vine to plant?

If so, send me your address by PM.
