It’s a bird! It’s a bird!

It’s an Evening Grosbeak!

While visiting our son in Montana, I spent some time sitting like a statue watching the bustling activity at their bird feeder.

There were two of these beauties peeking at me from behind the leaves of a lilac bush. Eventually they decided that I had no feathers OR wings, so I wasn’t a true threat and they popped into view.

Pretty!

I’M NOT ALWAYS LOOKING OUT THE WINDOW INTO THE WOODS…A LOT OF MY IMAGES ARE FROM OTHER PLACES…FLORIDA FOR INSTANCE.

EGRETS ARE AMONG MY FAVORITE BIRDS TO WATCH AND PHOTOGRAPH, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT KIND OF CHARACTER YOU’RE GOING TO RUN INTO.

BIRDS AREN’T ALWAYS SITTING IN A TREE SINGING PRETTY SONGS, SOMETIMES THEY’RE BEING ORNERY. THIS LOOKS LIKE A CASE OF “ORNERY” TO ME.
