Wow!  Congratulations!  I guess they really do love power lines.

They do. And there is a nesting pair just across the road from me. The power lines run across above their nest tree, a small evergreen. So it's very common for them to light on the wires there.

Hey everyone, @lonestranger had the great idea to let the winner choose the next photo challenge.  That means it's @Bird Brain's turn!  (If you don't want to choose you can pass to someone else)

You can post your challenge whenever you want, but you might get more people participating if you wait until the weekend.

Okay. After dark, so I'll post the next challenge. Trying to make it as fair as possible, so I'm picking a widely distributed bird, Northern Mockingbird. BUT, to make it a bit more difficult, since almost anyone in the lower 48 can find a Mockingbird, let's make it more specific as TBN did.

So, the challenge is to get a photo of a Northern Mockingbird in an evergreen tree, e.g., pine, cedar, etc. Good luck everyone!!!

Is there an end date for this Challenge?

Might want to ask @The Bird Nuts as he/she/they started this thread. I have no problem with either putting a time limit on each challenge or letting it run till someone wins. I'm fine with it either way. But I'll leave it up to TBN.

I took this photo on Wednesday, just two days before @Bird Brain posted his challenge. So close. :classic_unsure:

Beautiful shot! It's a shame you took it before the challenge was posted. But, alas, as the old saying goes, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades!!! 😏

I wasn't planning on setting a time limit for each challenge, but I guess if we feel it's going on too long we can have a vote to see if people want to end it.

Thanks!  Since I'm pretty new to all this, I'm gonna defer the decision for the next challenge back to you @The Bird Nuts.

Okay!  How about........a crow perched on a rooftop.
