I appreciate the nice comments, Jim--penolta--flutelady--squirl--Hung. It took some waiting to catch this bird and the sun in the same spot without distracting shadows.

Happy New Year to all !!

Don, it was a pleasant treat to see them show up and hang around. I get the Goldfinches but first time for these at the feeders. Thanks for looking!

Beatiful, that's all there is to say. I have never seen one of those in these parts. Very cool.

Pretty bird, I've only seen this bird once in my area and it was exciting to see something rare to the area. Great presentation, fine background compliment.

Oh my, what eye popping colours :shock:! We have them here, but I've never seen them close enough for a capture. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your photos. Cheers, Dan

Thanks for the positive comments, Norm. They were non-existent in my yard last winter, but regular visitors for this one.
