Back in December, when I had just started blogging, I posted about this little fellow. Since no one was reading me then, I am pretty sure no one saw him. He was just too pretty to allow him to go unnoticed forever! He was sitting outside on my deck railing, soaking up the sunshine during a particularly nasty cold snap (for my friends in Canada and points north - if it is below 32, it is a nasty cold snap for me!). I looked in my field guide to identify him and to the best of my knowledge, he is a Red-headed Cowbird. If someone knows differently, PLEASE let me know! I have learned so much from all of you - and I prefer to be informed!
He posed quite nicely, then flew away, leaving his mess behind!
