My son spotted a Carolina Wren and a Pine Siskin at my birdfeeders on Thanksgiving. I hadn't seen either bird for a Loooonggg time! Because I had just submitted my bird count the day before on the Project Feederwatch site, I couldn't count these birds!!
(left: house sparrow, center: pine siskin, and right: goldfinch)
Why is it that I haven't seen them since??? So I am still unable to add them to my count. Humpfh! ha.
I didn't get a photo of the Carolina wren... but I'm still hoping to spot them. :-)

This Buff Orpington Rooster Rules the Roost! :-) These are beautiful chickens. They reside in a locally restored farmstead on the south edge of our town.
The Maasdam family moved here many years ago, originally from Holland. They
raised, showed, and sold Percheron horses. A small home was moved from
town to the site, in the last few years, containing information about the farm enterprise and family displays. It is
also a local Welcome Center.
Such a proud fellow!
It has been my desire to render a drawing or painting of this Buff Orpington Rooster. And so, I have.
Below is the 1/2-way-along progress.
Now he is finished and on display.
Guarding his hens.
