He has some wonderful chirpy songs.... .... and, is pretty camera shy. Yes, I know it looks like he is just a show off...but, I only managed to capture these pics through a window with a venetian blind in it. And, I had to move stealthily because he flew off the second he noticed any movement. I hardly ever manage to outwit them when I am outside...they check on me from a tall tree across the street... sing at the top of their little lungs and wait til I go in the house....arrrghhhhh!!
((Remember to click on any of the photos to "biggify" them...))
However, I managed to adjust the blind just so for the angle I needed to the birdie bath ....and, after the first few blurry photos and him leaving and then coming back later (of course, I don't know for sure it was the same guy...but, I'm pretending it was) .... I managed to get him having some fun in the birdie bath.
This may not be the same guy...and, was probably several days before the rest of the shots... ...but, had to show you how cool and collected a "Chirpy' can look... . ..
.... before it becomes this..!!
... and, he ends up totally bedraggled and spiky.... ..
