Share Your Best Photo of the Day

Message added by aveschapinas,

Folks: it's not OK to take other people's photos to edit and re-post. Just like we don't correct each other's spelling and grammar, we don't take it upon ourselves to decide that someone's photo needs correction. In addition, as has been emphasized before, you need to respect copyright.

We live out in the country, and have 25 acres. (On our three mile road there is all of five houses.) There is a field across the road. A small creek runs threw our land, around the creek it is heavily wooded. The rest of our land is lightly wooded.

Yes the Siskin was in my yard. Most of the photos I post our in my yard.


Yeah, I was going to say, where you live really matters. We live in the country with 9 acres and have about 165 on our property list. But 3 serious birders for 20+ years.

Well, #300 happened last night!  We were headed to the barn we shoot archery in and we just turned on to the road that it is on, and drove about 150yds down the road and there was a tire turd in the road then as we got closer it was too upright to be a tire turd. Mom slammed on the brakes as we realized that it wasn't a tire turd.......it was an OWL!!  My brain clicked on what it was before Mom's did.  It was a Short-eared Owl!!!!  It sat in the middle of the road for about a minute, then it flew up on the bank of the road.  We took a ton of pictures, then left to go shoot our bows. Driving back Mom said and I quote "We will probably never see that owl again on this road"  And there it was same spot on the bank of the road again.  It was on my side this time and we got a lot more pictures. I was probably 15 feet away from this SEOW.   Amazingly unreal!  Only cell photos.  Will go out again tonight with our core group and try to find it.

Fantastic find but....

Not heard this one before...maybe a technical term....possibly related to.... Leave nothing but Footprints,

OTOH I may just be jealous.

A tire turd is a frozen block of built-up snow/slush that will fall off of the mudflaps on a person's car.
Something only people in the north / in the mountains experience. They can build up pretty bad and really get frozen on there, can become pretty hazardous. Lots of build up and they can cause your whole car to vibrate at highway speeds." Quote - @AlexHenry

It is weird to me that people don't know what they are........but if it rarely snows....
