Awesome pic. Not sure what kind of bird that is. At first I thought it was a house sparrow but I'm not so sure.

Alas, no picture. But a question for anyone with an interest in wildlife. Has anyone ever heard of a fisher sighting in SE PA because I am fairly sure I saw one Saturday morning around 6AM in the forest behind my property. I emailed the PA wildlife conservation officer with the same question and have not heard back. Teaches me to always carry my phone, even when out walking dogs in my jammie's!

One of my friends aunts took this, she lives in havertown. Not sure if this is a king fisher or not, but the beak is a close resemblance

Wrong fisher tombo... Guess I should have specified, one of these - the fisher that has no wings and does not eat fish!

Ray, Where was that snake?

On a little mountain nearby (little by NV standards... by PA standards, pretty big).
