Spud that is a beautiful bird picture.

Patricia thanks for the Snowbirds - it must be very cool to see them perform.

Thanks Jimmy, I have a feeder that will work with Niger.

Dallas, I have mostly sparrows, too. I play CD bird songs trying to attract in the birds I know live in this area. Occasionally gold finch, woodpeckers, and hawks drop in and of course, the sky is full of crows and pigeons but they don't land here. If anyone has any other ideas for attracting birds, please let me know.

Although the bill is not the right shape.  I got my picture from Google, and after reading about it, mine may be a hybrid.  Wikipedia shows the Tropical Parula as being more black than blue.  What do I know?  Not much.

Such a beautiful sight to see this morning. It's windy here. It might rain. I need to check the forecast.
