What Bit The Hellziggy?

And the answer to yesterday's poll is:



White-breasted Nuthatch!

This close-up of the little guy getting one last nibble in is cropped from one of Scott Taylor's photos.

Two of you got it right - genevra, who knew I was going to a birding thing, and kafilipi, who actually saw the Nuthatch bite me! By far the most common guess from you lot was Hellbob! LOL!

Yesterday morning I went out to Ritter Farm Park down in Lakeville because they were having a birding event. The raptor center was out there, there were stations to build your own birdhouse, and the really cool thing I went down for was Mark and Roger (aka Minnesota Birdnerd) had set up a banding station. The nets were already down when I got there but there were plenty of birds still waiting to be banded. I had met Mark & Roger several times before at Birdchick's Birds 'n Beers gatherings, and Scott Taylor who I had also met at Birds 'n Beers was there taking pictures. I also saw kafilipi out there. Here's another of the photos Scott took of me releasing the Nuthatch. He caught the bird right in mid wing flap, looking pretty darn cool!

Nope. And when I try to open it in another window I get this:

Security Violation
The action you attempted is not permitted.

Back to the Gallery

OK, I just did a bunch of permissions crap in Gallery. Is it there now?

Well, it's easy to see why:

    Nuthatch / Nutjob

Very easy to confuse the two. :D


And, now, if you don't mind, I'll just be hiding over...

...here.
