Mike these are beautiful birds. Always amazed at their opulent 'coat'.
You've shown that so beautifully here. Love the setting.

Many thanks, Richard. I'm always appreciative of your thoughtful responses.

Hi Mike...

Thanks so much. The males really stand out against the subdued desert background colors.

great camouflage on that one!


I have been making the back yard more bird-friendly over the last couple of years and it is starting to pay off. Might have to hire air traffic control soon. A couple from today.

Sat around waiting for this one...the Yellow Breasted Woodpecker. I can distinguish the call in the trees, and they like to hide just around the tree edges but it finally came and landed on one of the new perches. Still waiting on the big Pielated to come back, I saw it yesterday but no chance to get a shot off.
