Wonderful pictures of a neat little bird. :-)
The only downside is that itturned its head to follow you in #4 -- the back side of its head has a couple of marks that are supposed to resemble eyes, so that a predator sneaking up from the rear would think it was being watched - and they are larger than the bird's own eyes, so that in weak light or darkness it would give the impression of a larger bird! A pretty neat defence! Would have made a truly great picture - think you can find it again?

Thanks for the back ground information penolta. It really is an amazing little bird. I plan to go back next weekend if the weather is nice. The birders told me there is a few in the area.
