Sometimes they refuse to cooperate.
And many thanks to everyone for helping me in identifying birds. Beyond the colorful birds common to this area, I am not up to speed. If the bird is only brown and/or gray (which is not immediately recognizable to me) I am at a loss. Yes, you could say that they all look the same to me. I am learning to look at their beaks as well as coloring. Please don't give up on me!
