Default Guess who came to dinner?

Talk about luck! I noticed the birds scatter at the feeding station and didn't think too much of it because they always do that. However, I just finished doing a little shooting and was going to see what I had when... this guy landed right about 18 feet in front of me with my 570 still on and zoom extended!!
