He is a migratory bird who arrived this morning. I tried photographing him earlier this morning when it was dark and rainy but it was a bit hard to get his colors correct and for showing good eye definition as his head is so black .....,He came back later when the lighting was brighter and caught this shot of him that picked up the rusty brown colors much better on his breast and definition in his eye. I only wish the jelly dish hanger had not got in the way of his beak:) I'll try again if he returns and maybe next time can get another angle.

Thank you very much Frank Degenhardt for your kind spotlight 5/18/2017! Appreciated!!!
