For the past three weeks I have been hiding in the bushes, crouching behind a tree, and standing in the shadows to capture this little guy.
And his brother, or whoever his friend is there on the left.
I'm sure the neighbors are relieved that I finally got pictures of these two little guys. I'm sure they are wondering what I'm doing lurking around in the bushes. That's really not normal for me.
Are you fascinated by any unusual birds in your backyard?
My husband compares me to a "child with a new toy."
When I see either one of these guys I grab the camera.
I have plenty of pictures of the bushes and the yard, especially under the feeder, right after they fly away.
I can almost hear the two of them laugh when I "miss" the shot!
When I came flying into the house, doors slamming behind me shouting, "I got them"! My husband was a little nervous---for a minute.
