Hi John -Your website is briinlalt so happy to have found it.This morning, I saw two delightful birds in my backyard. After searching thru my Audubon book, your pictures and Cornell Lab's site, I still am baffled as to what kind they are.Would you please help me to identify them?The date is Oct 7, 2012, and I'm in Oakland Park, FL. Beak to tail tip, they are about 3-4 inches long, delicate looking, not frightened of me, and flit from branch to branch with lightning speed. One has noticeably more yellow than the other. They seem quiet (but with as many birds as I have here, maybe they are just drowned out) and I could not identify their call.I've included photos. My apologies, but this is the best I could manage. Each photo has a cropped version for better viewing.Thanks so much!Kathy

Hi there! I realize this is somewhat off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does running a well-established blog like yours require a
lot of work? I am brand new to operating a blog however
I do write in my diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start
a blog so I will be able to share my experience and views online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for
new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
wondering which blog platform are you using for
this website? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because
I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform.
I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
