What a beautiful bird! I didn't realize that the US had any that brightly colored - so many of our birds are grey or brown, very drab.

Nice catch, Ed. We don't get those out here.

Harriet, we don't get to see as many colorful birds this far West as Ed and other fortunate Floridians do, but we do have them - here is one from my back yard taken a couple of days ago:
