Birds on the birdfeeder

We've enjoyed having a birdfeeder in the yard for the first time. There have been quite a variety of birds visiting our yard. Below is a red-bellied woodpecker. My parents are avid bird-watchers and hadn't seen one in the Washington, DC area since they moved here in 1961. We got more involved in bird-watching after our vacations to various national parks in Yellowstone, the Grand Canyon and

    Cool, large bug (insect: 6 legs). It reminds me of a stink bug. It was in the bathroom. We couldn't figure out how it got inside. Once outside, I realized how cool it was once I took it outside.
