I have been watching the feeder on an off and had a real surprise!
First, a second pair of Red Breasted Grosbeaks has come around.
This is a rather motely fellow. He isn’t as well marked. Perhaps he is young.
I have seen also his Mrs. Motley Grosbeak but I don’t have her photo yet.
The House Finch is frequently around.
Just to show that the Red Bellied Woodpecker does indeed have a red belly.
But the big surprise was this very cautious bird I haven’t been able to shoot clearly.
He just turned up this afternoon. I hope to see him in the morning, when the sun is on the feeder.
When he took off and went into the light, his color was amazing.
This is, I believe, Indigo Bunting!
I will keep the lens trained.
