Nothing out of the ordinary for a while. Here are a few unsensational shots of some common subjects.

Wilson's Snipe. This guy and his mate have settled in for the winter in a fairly easy viewing location. Both seem rather stoic and will not show me any animation.

(Minolta 135/2.8)


this is my friend and regular guest Gillis
(left his home last year and still missing     )



(Trioplan 50)


posted only because I think it's a bit rude to start talking right away.
but do have a Q for y'all? about bird whisperers...

today a whole new universe opened... while trying to find some flower seeds, I came across these -62 of them!-.
and was wondering if they could also be used to actually call birds?
https://www.ctexplored.org/the-simple-genius-of-the-audubon-bird-call/
and learned something new about the one invented by a man named Roger Eddy: a cool gadget to help with your birdwatching!
which seems to be quite famous among birders?
they are like everywhere explained in numerous videos on youtube.
so the Q is, of course, if any of you ever tried one of these or something simular. and if so, did it 'help'? ;)
