13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:

I had in my head to do a find-and-guess this bird, but thought it would be unfair to you as I have rarely talked about this bird. We have not seen it very often. Once last spring, but this year we saw them three times in less than a month’s time. Saturday, we finally got decent photos, but two days later, we had a great opportunity to get even better ones.
Here is one that I had edited for a guess this. Can you find the little Brown Creeper? What amazing camouflage!
The Little Birding Expert took this one. I could not believe how close he was able to get.
This is a fun little bird that lives up to its name. It begins at the base of a tree and creeps around the trunk going upward. It uses its uniquely made bill to pry bugs out of the crevices of the tree. I think it is interesting the feet are nearly pink.
Today (20 April), we did a little birding at Bays Branch. I’ve never seen so many Coots in my life! We also saw a few Peeps- Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, along with those unidentifiable ones. We ran into a new issue. The heat coming off the water made it difficult to use the scope. We could not really focus. Anyone know of a way to deal with this?
Some of us went out to our little piece of prairie to start digging up the sour dock. Those things are terrible! Some of the roots were so big, I could not wrap my hand around them. I hope we can get out again before the ticks get active. We may not be able to remove it all, but any little bit helps.
