Have you ever seen this video?

I'm laying way too hard! Can you imagine what's going on in the lynx's mind? I don't think I'm going to try this, but thanks for sharing. I needed that laugh!

Yep, that's what I feed them. White sugar dissolved in water. I finally saw one tonight, a male. I guess they are "busy" right now.

Not a great pic, since I took it through the screen on my window, but this guy would be tricky to get a good shot of since he (or she) scares away easily, so this will have to do.

It's obvious it's checking out my backyard frequently because it learned there's a lot of critters hanging out around my bird feeders.
Just saw this hawk capture ... something. Not sure what it was, it was small and green. Maybe a lizard, frog or a large cricket. It's really become a regular in my yard.

Yes, that always strikes me as humorous. Many years ago, there was a 1-panel comic strip in Birdwatcher's Digest. One month, it featured a bird dressed up as a cowboy, strumming a guitar and singing, "Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowbirds". It cracks me up to this day to think of it!
