Sorry these pics are so crummy. I had to run in for the camera and I was trying to take them quickly before my daughter scared it away. She just can't sit still when there's a new bird around. She's always trying to get a closer look.

This is the only clear pic I got, but of course the bird was behind some branches.

This one kinda shows the colors a little better, but it's not really in focus.

This bird appeared to be a little larger than the painted buntings I've been seeing. About the size of a Mockingbird, but without the long tail.

Okay, this pic is really blurry, but maybe there's some information in it to help. I really wished I'd gotten this one in focus. I could see the bird best when it was here on the bird bottle and it would have made a cool picture too. But alas, before I could get off another shot, he move back into the woods, where the other pics were taken.

Thank you Resin! That is a new one for me. Wonder what the chances are that I'll keep seeing her. She's beautiful.
