New Yard Bird!!

After living here for eight years, it's hard to have any new birds to record. So imagine my excitement when I saw this scurry past the sliding glass doors this morning.

He zipped across the yard like a wind up toy. I loved it.


I've added this new yard bird to the list. #59.

  3. How darling!! I live in Indiana and we have them here, but I've never seen one. And in your own yard!!!!! I'm so glad you had your camera handy to share. What a beautiful bird.

  4. They are cute, but my son does not care for them in his garden as they dig, dig, dig and eat, eat, eat his veggies :-(

  5. Congrats on the new yard bird! I think we need to institute a backyard bird exchange program. I'll share with you my abundant species if you'll share yours with me.
