I almost screamed as he startled me when I saw him on the bird feeder late this afternoon but instead I collected myself and shot his picture.. He was enormous and he had his crest up as high as it would go. I grabbed my camera and shot this close up through the window before he left..I tried to shoot the rest of its body too (which I did) but at the time a board on the back edge of the feeder was loose and was sticking diagonally up in the air covering some of the other part of his body so opted for a close up on the second attempt on this shot. I went outside afterward and got the board inserted back in the right position but of course by that time this big guy was gone.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
