What a great picture! I don't think I've seen any of those around here. He's absolutely gorgeous!

NICE!

ScMomma, the only time we ever see them, is when we're at Fort Desoto. They tend to hang in the open field with the tall grasses.

Darla, they are so pretty! I love their soulful eyes the best.

Wonderful birds!

I was about to ask where you'd seen them, then saw your comment. We don't get out to Ft. Desoto much, and I dont think i've ever seen them around here before. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled, what a cool looking bird!

Dani said...

Threecollie, do you see them much where you live?

Laura, it's been bird crazy there lately!

We have a goodly number of them in summer and we simply love them. A pair used to nest in our horse yard and they were nearly tame....I hope they come back this year.

Threecollie, you have the neatest birds at your house! How lucky you are.
