    Re: Bird ID Help, please.

    Yeah, I'm thinking mutant as well. The colorations you describe could be a hormonally raged bluebird trying his best to attract a mate but the eating habits are odd. Bluebirds will most definitely...

    Re: Bird ID Help, please.

    I did finally get the Indigo Bunting, attached.

    Re: Gooseneck/Truck Clearances

    We pull a fifth wheel camper behind our F250 4X4. As it sits higher than a 4X2 we had the trailer raised for more clearance. This is common for campers, not sure for livestock trailers. All they...
