What a great looking bird !!!!!

KK said...

Pics look great.

Are these SOOC? The bird is so clear and the background is blurry. (Don't let my lack of knowledge about photography demotivate you)

We get one a year. They are interesting. I had one land on my widow cell last year and I was startled as I never seen a bird like that. So I guess it flew from your place. We do not have them normal as our birds.

Nice Pictures.

It's almost as if I could touch them!!!

Mom is so envious she can hardly type. Many years ago we had a pair of them at our feeders as they were heading north for the spring. Absolutely exotic looking
Hugs madi and mom

Nice bird shots.
I have a question. I see you changed your template to the one I have. How did you make it wider to accomodate larger pictures??

Donna said...

Love the shots Jill!

Hi Jill, I have never seen this bird until recently a local blogger posted about seeing one. I've heard a different song sung by a bird, but have not spotted it yet! Such a beautiful spring, I'm twitterpatted. How's your Eagle friend?
Take care my friend, enjoy every moment! Love, Penny

Ellie said...

Hi Jill, that is such a pretty bird and you got some really lovely pictures of it.
I haven't been to visit your blog in quite a while hopefully I will get back into blogging and visiting more often soon.
Hope you are all well! :))

I've seen them too, and I've never heard their song, and I'll have too.

I also love your post about the Goldfinch and totally agree with what you said about them, epecially on a cloudy day!!
