It's not so much stretching it for this topic, it's thinking outside the box! Love the shot and the idea, not sure of the bird ID. There's too many mostly grey birds for me to sort them all out.

Outside the box is right. Great idea! Very clever.

The bird is a Gray Catbird (so named for its cat-like call), a relative of the Mockingbird. It does look as if it is on the alert for something (probbably watching you!)

Now that's a really cute picture - they sure look like they are really paying attention to something.

I really need to go looking for something, this is just too good a challenge to pass up!

Gosh, I really need to visit this forum more regularly and stop using the excuse that "I don't have time"!

Anyway, thought I'd give this month's challenge a go. Taken today at a football (soccer) match at Arsenal's Emirates Stadium in London. One of the teams playing was the New York Red Bulls.

Now that's some BIG glass! Is the guy in red a security guy? He looks out of place with that group.

Default Waiting Their Turn

Dad (on the feeder) and the kids waiting for him to finish, so they can get at the "nectar." (Hooded Orioles).

Still haven't gotten my desktop back online, so just a quick and dirty edit in iPhoto on my portable.

That looks very much like an Arsenal (Emirates is their ground) football shirt to me !
