I was delighted to get a picture of this bird who we rarely see on our feeder. He made his appearance today. They come from Canada and migrate when it gets too cold for them. They are known to have a red cap and black chin. According to the Golden Guide to Field Identification book of No. America their common call, a hoarse chit-chit-chit, given frequently in flight.

    LOL The only difference, Lynn is Mr. Audobon shot and killed birds with a gun before he painted them and I shoot painlessly with the camera:) Thank you all for your comments... I am so glad I am not the only bird lover in the JPG community.

    It's amazing to me that you know what kind of bird you photograph, but also the sex of the bird! You have some wonderful shots of so many birds. We'll have to nickname you the bird whisperer!

    Thank you Lori; I have a good bird book copyrighted 1966 that my husband's mother gave to us before she passed away, entitled Golden A Guide to Field Identification Birds of North America. I refer to it often if I am in doubt of what type of bird I am photographing.
