    Here's my little friend Wilson - it's been a while since I was able to photograph him. The aging bird feeder will be replaced one of these days. At least Wilson isn't complaining about it.

    This was the first time I've photographed a turkey vulture perched on a branch. Usually I only see them flying overhead.

    I was finally able to photograph Wilson on the squirrel feeder. It's close to our backdoor so I went out the front and walked around. Even though he knew I was there, he proceeded to eat. While he really likes peanuts, it's the sunflower seeds he loves. It must not have taken him long to figure out how to lift the lid. The food has been eaten everyday.

    If this had been any other squirrel, it would have run off. And in case you are wondering about the long screw, it's to be able to fasten on a corn cob. The screw has a plastic tip protector on the end so he won't get hurt.

    This morning I was about to add some peanuts to the squirrel feeder when I looked out the window. Not sure if this squirrel is Wilson, but it stayed like that while eating. Instead of sitting on the platform and dropping the shells outside the feeder, it is leaving the shells inside.

    Below is the same image before doing any Photoshop editing. There is a CP filter on my lens, but I didn't even consider a reflection from the next window (actually the window shade) would be visible. When I took the photo, I placed part of the hood against the door's glass. The lens was at an angle to the glass though. Somehow it picked up a reflection of the slatted window shade in the next window. I didn't remove every sign of the reflections. It took enough time to do just what was done. Next time I will definitely keep watch and see if rotating my CP filter makes a difference.

    I don't know how many of you have seen the photos circulating on Facebook of the squirrel sitting at a picnic table, but someone made this for Wilson. I just set it up this afternoon and already it is in use.
