You've got some great close-ups there, Flo; well done. Is there any opportunity to get him on a more natural perch?

He's a real looker Gail, and you've captured his good looks in fine fashion.
Funny about him and the post.....maybe a love/hate thing going on there :)
Is that still your homemade suet he's enjoying?

He really is doing a number on that post. And it shows how large a bird that is. Excellent captures, Gail.

Something is awry here. I cannot get within a rugby field’s distance of them and you have one in your backyard posing? Sheesh! Nice captures, Flo!

Lovely shots Gail, well done. They always remind me of a prehistoric type of bird.
