Habitat:

Notes:

This fellow ambled in 0700 and flopped himself down to eat the sunflower seeds that had dropped from the bird feeder. They are getting ready to hibernate and are focused on packing on weight. Here is the full scroll down story on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/yeimaya/507...

Thanks Peter ... I this is a great site and will be adding a lot more over time and poking through to see what is here. I am going to be speaking right after Yassar at the poptech.com conference and his description of this site drew me to it.
