A pretty bird...for a change...
Yes, I have been cranky of late...crazy politicians...a lack of birds, at least ones close enough to shoot, I apologize. Back to the birds at hand! They're worth two in a bush you know.
I just got home from my hour drive from work (cranky?, yes.) and looked out the dining room window to spy this female Rose-breasted Grosbeak on our feeder! We haven't seen her since spring time, I guess she was too busy to say hello this summer. No matter, she's back and she's been in and out all evening. Love them sunflower seeds!
I cranked up the ISO on the camera to 1600 and aimed through the smudgy glass (don't tell the Doodles I said that!) and took a shot. What do you know, it actually came out. Rosy and the House Sparrow saw me ogling them through the window pane and both gave me the crazy eye!
I am in a much better mood now. Thank you Rosy!

I have never seen a Grosbeak Booty... I feel so much closer to the bird now! Nice pictures... I have yet to have one of these at my feeder that I am aware of.ReplyDelete

I love your butt pictures, especially when it is one of Rosy ;-)
Are you off your meds again?
I would love to see a Rosie but they're rare where I live. Another great post!ReplyDelete
Dave, these are cracking birds and would love to see one on the UK shores!ReplyDelete
Nice site and photos. I think I may have to start a blog called 'Video from Behind' or maybe just 'Tails'!ReplyDelete
