We had a newcomer at the bird feeder today. And for the life of me, I cannot determine who it is. I know it's not the best shot in the world, but can anyone help identify this one? Thanks much!!

Wow, that was fast, and thank you very much!! Apparently, they are not seen here in Indiana too often. Hope to keep this one around for a bit, that's for sure!!

I just posted on the other thread, I saw a pair today at our feeders this morning!! I had never seen one before, but I knew we are suppose to have them here. We have moved from suburban area to more rural area and I am loving it. Deer, birds, raccoons ect.

Nanny, aren't they a welcome surprise? This is the first time I've ever seen one and was so thrilled when I saw it because it is such a pretty bird. And, they seem to be very patient. This one waited forever on a branch above the feeder for its turn to eat.

It's great to see and enjoy the wildlife, isn't it? :)

Well, I was just looking at the feeder this morning and it looks like there are two males now. Maybe they'll stay for the summer!

I have one visiting my feeder. I had never seen one before and almost fell out when I saw it. He stays at the feeder for a long time, so you really can get a good look at him.Sure do wish he'd hang around. I also saw three females. Beth

I saw my first one ever 3-4 days ago, (male) patiently waiting on a branch near the feeders. They have SUCH dramatic coloration!

Nanny_56; Welcome to the country. It just keeps getting better. It's the ole "The more you see - the more you know, the more you know - the more you see." Enjoy. :)
