No Creeper But I've Never Been Skunked

 I went to an area that I've always been able to find a Brown Creeper.They love viney half-dead trees like this. I have not seen a creeper all year which is unusual for me.
 I was able to get a nice view of American Goldfinches in their winter plumage.
There were also a number of Red-winged Blackbirds around.

One thing I love about birding is that I've never gone out birding without seeing a bird. It may not be the one I'm looking for but I always see something. When I used to go fishing there was many times when I caught nothing.We used to call it getting skunked. I've never been skunked birding.

I've been skunked while fishing so many times! I do enjoy seeing the birds and listening for them.
It is easier to find the birds and spot them in the brush when it has snowed around here!
