Photo license: © All rights reserved giveth his color when it moveth itself right... Proverbs 23: 31

It was bitterly cold today with the wind chill at minus 35 degrees below zero ...Too cold for humans let alone birds and beasts but it was wonderful to see this splash of warm color with this bird's bright red head and I am glad he was turned the right direction on this shot....He was all over the place today and moving quickly because of the cold weather.

His red color shines bright
If he turns its head right,
And not hide behind it,
When eating the suet!
Poetry by me AJP
