We will be rolling out several small fixes mid-day today (Jan 29.) We do not anticipate any disruptions or problems, but f you spot any unexpected issues after 12 noon (PST), please report them in the designated thread in the DG Site Updates forum.

Guess you're never too old to learn something new about the birds you love. That's funny about your crow grabbing three peanuts.
Hack, that's a great link for the black-eyed susans. I have lots of them in my garden and I've always just put the dried blooms in a paper bag, roll the top closed and shake. If anyone wanted some seeds, I'd be happy to send them, but I usually just leave them out for the birds.
Chillybean, that's sad to hear about the dove hunting season. Poor little ones are so friendly it would be more like a slaughter. Love your bathing oriole.
Nutsaboutnature, cute photos of your birds. Rain? We badly need some here but never see it.
As of last night we have two bad wildfires at the east end of our small county. It's over 100 every day here and the fires are in the mountains so please keep our firefighters in your thoughts and prayers.
Here's a northern flicker that let me walk up close, a pair of western grebes (nesting time), a great blue heron and a black phoebe.
