I see this bird around a bit but rarely in the open. When the sunflowers go to seed almost every bird in the neighborhood stops by or some treats. Yesterday I managed to get pictures of 5 or 6 species without even moving from my chair. Looking up the sky provides the perfect background.


  1. Great picture! Aren’t these little guys usually very fidgety? They are not that common here, but the few I have seen don’t stay still for long enough to get a picture..


    1. Thanks. Most of the sunflowers were small this year because they didn’t get enough water. This particular one is large I think because it gets more water along with the tomato plants. Thanks for stopping by.
