This is probably my favorite bird besides the Morning lark. You captured the flash they make in the dead of winter. Liked this and it is amazing how the abstract of a few words can still say so much!

I will. Dr. bruised my eye yesterday so it is still sore today. It should be better tomorrow. That is why I haven't been online much today. Thanks Connie

LOVE IT! My favorite bird even though we don’t have them in California. Love them in red or yellow. Just a beautiful bird and you summed it up here most gracefully. Congratulations on this!
