But ask now the beasts and they shall teach thee; and the birds of the air, and they shall tell thee...Job 11: 07
After flying from Mexico
The rose-breasted grosbeak
Has surely been on the go...
More than we can speak!
The colorful migratory birds
are faithful to their words...
Cold weather drives them away
And they usually arrive in May....
Poetry by me, AJP
I was so happy to see this colorful male rose-breasted grosbeak make his arrival today... It flies south for the winter and north in the spring. We have been waiting for its appearance..He came a little earlier this morning and I was all set to take its picture before it rained, but a squirrel decided at that exact moment to chase it off the feeder...Thankfully it came back (without the interference of the squirrel) after it stopped raining and the lighting was even better.
Thank you so much Gloria (Je suis Moi) for the spotlight...and thank you also again for the nomination...
I decided to enter this in the triangle challenge...as this bird has a pronounced triangle shaped beak and a triangle pattern on its chest, plus triangle shaped wings. When you observe a bird you may see many triangular patterns on them to even the designs inside of their wings.
