  1. I think in this case, the main reason for not seeing the rump would simply be that the bird is facing the wrong direction.
  2. I believe @The Bird Nuts will be choosing a new bird sometime today.
  3. Thanks for the reminder @Bird Brain. I pick @Kerri's CPR post as the winner.
  4. You might try uploading your video to youtube and then share the link here. Your video should be viewable without any need for downloading it.
  5. Don't forget to look behind you, too. We tend to focus on what is in front of us, but it's worth stopping and turning to look behind yourself now and then.
  6. @Aveschapines, Clean up in aisle 4...*ducks for cover* Seriously, I appreciate how you manage the forums, and your patience in doing so. 👍👍
  7. Is Sean any good with that Trumpet? (aren't typos great)
  8. While I'll admit that the harsh weather can be hard on birds and some will succumb to the cold, I don't think it would happen specifically to just one species. One thing that makes me wonder about this event, is the fact that so many birds were in the nest boxes. While I have only observed nest boxes from roadside viewing, I have never seen birds near them other than during breeding season. Is it typical for birds to seek shelter in nest boxes outside of nesting season? If so, do just bluebirds use bluebird boxes for shelter or might there be a battle with other birds over who gets shelter and
  9. That's a good question. The reviews I've read never mention it folding up accidentally. There were a few comments about tip overs and how the cargo net of one model helped prevent spillage during a tip over. Here's the link to the their website with more details and reviews. https://macsports.com
  10. @floraphile I have also been considering some of the collapsable wagons for hauling my gear around. It looks like Mac Sport has various styles to choose from and is available at Costco and Amazon.
  11. I have been thinking about ways to easily transport my gear and the Pop-cart looks interesting but I'm not convinced the wheels are big enough to make it practical for off road terrain. On level ground it wouldn't be a problem but getting the cart to roll over rocks, roots, holes, etc., might be tricky with the small wheels. I have never used a cart in rough terrain but I know from personal experience with hand trucks/dollies, the bigger the wheels are the better it handles differences in terrain, including stairs. Hand trucks with small wheels need to be dragged up stairs, ones with bigger wh
  12. I'm not convinced it's the cold killing them either. Up here in Ontario, we get Eastern Bluebirds year round and also get some pretty cold temps. If a couple of extremely cold nights was to cause their demise, I don't think we'd have them year round.
  13. Hmmm, I wonder what that nail was suppose to hold.
