I really tried my best to sneak up on this bird. As the photos clearly show I failed. While looking out our bedroom window I saw the bird perched on our back porch. I ran to get my camera and tried to slowly move our kitchen blinds to get a few shots of this creature. As soon as the blind moved it took off and I almost didn’t get any pictures at all. These are the only two I captured.
This is the second year in a row I’ve come across an interesting bird in our backyard. Both years it has been during the Month of January. Not sure if this is a late season migration or the feeder that attracts them. Unfortunately – once again – I have no idea what type of bird this is.
