Great photos! Really nice. I'd get a bigger watermark.
Edit: It's kind of a fun where's Waldo to find them.

Very nice pictures. We have quite a few of them here. Before we moved where we are, I had only seen maybe three of them. We have them almost daily during the summer.

Those are cool birds. We have one that hangs out at the house and uses our hot tub spillway as his personal bath.

Edit:found cell phone pic I snapped

Flat out gorgeous birds. Hey Bill, do you know what their range is? We see several cardinals and a healthy amount of bluebirds in the spring but thatís about as colorful as we get.

Iíd love to see some of these birds up here in NTx.

I call them "Gods rainbow bird". Here is a link that shows their range. They especially like white millet seed.

Oh wow! Thatís encouraging. We keep a mix of black sunflower, safflower seed and millet out fairly consistently for the songbirds.

Thanks BTW
