9/11 was an inside job.
No second plane.It was a bomb.Bomb in the other building.
You KNOW without a doubt the videos are fake,right ?!
Planes don't meld into steel and concrete buildings.They crash into them !!!!!!!
It's amazing how the building ate the plane !!!
Imagine those fragile wings cutting slots in massive steel columns !!!!!
How STUPID can they think the people are to believe that crap ??!!

Smile at whatever happens.

Is No. 3 the male cardinal ?

Yes, No. 3 is the male cardinal... a brilliant red, they are beautiful.  No. 2 is the female, a muted colour to protect her in the wild.  They have a beautiful call that can be heard from quite a distance.

In winter, we would hang mesh bags of suet with seeds mixed in.  The birds love it, and it's good for them... the oils and fats in the suet help them get through winter.

Yes, No. 3 is the male cardinal... a brilliant red, they are beautiful.  No. 2 is the female, a muted colour to protect her in the wild.  Males usually go to the feeder first to make sure it's safe, then he'll call for the female and she'll join him.  They are usually solitary feeders, won't go if there are a variety of birds feeding.  Sometimes the males will chase away other birds.  They have a beautiful call that can be heard from quite a distance.

In winter, we would hang mesh bags of suet with seeds mixed in.  Almost all of the birds love it, and it's good for them... the oils and fats in the suet help them get through the cold of winter.

Wow, multiple posts in response to petera... sorry about that!

No. 1: Warbler (a lot of different varieties, more than 50... has a beautiful song)
No. 2: female Cardinal
No. 3: male Cardinal
No. 4: Mourning Dove (has a soft call like it's mourning: hoo, hoo, hoo)
No. 5, 6, and 15: Starling (loud, obnoxious and aggressive bullies, usually fly in large flocks... troublesome for grain crops)
No. 7, 9, 10, 11, and 12: Bluejay (beautiful, but loud and noisy and can be aggressive, not as bad as Starlings though)
No. 8 and 14: Tufted Titmouse (small and timid, but has a beautiful song... related to the Chickadee family... plural form is Titmice)
No. 13: Downy Woodpecker (will eat seed if insects aren't available)

Whoever is feeding those birds isn't sparing any expense... looks like quality feed: seeds, corn, nuts, and dried fruit.
