  5. Let's give this a try... 53˚ and foggy in Byron this morning. Expected high today is 73° Easy peazy! Now, will I remember it And now for Stick's method... It was a darn chilly 40'so yesterday. Hey, that works too. Might even be easier to remember. Will have to check it out on a couple car sites I frequent. Thanks fellas!

    Very nice Steven, coming along... fast!
  7. Wow, this has certainly been interesting and has generated far more response than I thought it would. And I have learned a few things along the way. I actually spent a bit of time researching both pine warbler and yellow throated vireo last night. Seems whenever these are spotted, a lot of discussion is done in an attempt to identify, just as we have done this week. The confusion exists even on birding sites. At this time I shall call it a Pine Warbler sighting. Definitely not a Goldfinch - to large and wrong beak. John, I do not think it was an Oriole, even though we have the Baltimore Oriole here. It hung out almost exclusively at the suet feeder while the Oriole wants grape jelly and oranges. This birds eating habit made me think it was a female sapsucker at first. The Vireo descriptions reference the "spectacles" as more pronounced than this bird has. There is a difference in the beaks between the Vireo & Warbler - but my pictures are not clear enough to see this. Should this bird return next year, I have also learned a bit about my camera - or relearned as I did know at one time - I will be able to take a few more pics that will have the whole bird in focus. And @Dadio, thanks Herb - ™¢• ; I do not have an "alt" key (I have a Mac). I am sure a degree can be found somewhere, but not today!

    first show...

    Good luck Doc. Please take a pic of your booth for us. We might then be able to offer up some suggestions for your next one. One word of advise that has stuck with me as a response to people looking over your wares, and I do not remember who or where I read it, but: When someone might point out a flaw, your response should be - you cannot expect perfection, it is handmade. When someone exclaims it is so perfect, your response should be - it should be, it is handmade! Good luck again, we are all pulling for you.

    Birthday Greetings to...

    Happy Birthday Jim!
  12. Dave, I really do not think it is a goldfinch. We have goldfinches migrate through here in the spring so I have seen them in their "olive drab". This bird is much larger than a goldfinch, and the beak is not finch like. A friend has suggested a warbler, but they do not seem to have the distinctive wing band that this one (and goldfinches) have.

    Nice work Artie, please post up another pic after you have applied finish and call them done.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
