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.
“HELLOOOOOOO DOWN THERE,” called the pretty little bird
It listened very hard
and heard not a word.
“It’s okay, you can come up,” pretty bird then said
“I promise if you do, I won’t make you dead
I had a bowl of oatmeal so I’m quite well fed.”
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.
I WAS GOING THROUGH MY OLD IMAGES AND FOUND THIS ONE. I MAY HAVE SHARED IT WITH YOU BEFORE BUT I’M DOING IT AGAIN BECAUSE IT’S ONE OF MY FAVORITES.
IT’S POSSIBLE THAT I LIKE IT BECAUSE OF ALL THE FEATHERS…A SET OF WINGS WOULD DEFINITELY BE AWESOME TO OWN.
IT’S POSSIBLE THAT I LIKE IT BECAUSE IT HAS THAT COOL BEAK TO STAB IT’S FOOD WITH.
IT’S POSSIBLE THAT I LIKE IT BECAUSE I THINK I’D LIKE TO BE A BIRD FROM TIME TO TIME.
IT’S POSSIBLE THAT I LIKE IT BECAUSE…I LIKE IT.
