I had a Crossman V-350.  I thought I was so cool cuz it had a wood stock.  This is before I was old enough for a .22.
i go through this every spring.........after about 3 weeks these unwanted birds usually go off elsewhere so i will fight of the urge to buy another pellet gun.  :pouty: :surrender:

judging by the length of the tail on the feller to the left he is an older bird. :rotflmao:

Thought I heard some barn swallows last night but no evidence of them at choretime Hope they show up soon. Flies are having a heyday & swallows eat a lot of them. Swatted a bunch of them in the bar yesterday & the bottom of the cutworm sticky trap was almost black with flies this morning.  :shocked:

Was pretty warm yesterday but don't have a thermometer or a clock in the Studebaker. Nice to live off the grid sometimes.  :happy1: No windows open in the bar either but they had the front door wide open with no screen door inside of it. That might be a nice addition in the future. Of course, then it'd be harder to throw union thugs and other assorted delinquents out in the street!  :rotflmao:

This morning we have so many Evening Grosbeaks in our feeder that I can't count them.  Of course they are coming and going constantly.  Great to see.  Been awhile.
