About This Image

While out taking some tree bud photos this guy stopped by for a visit. I got this one shot and it was gone. I was bummed the new green buds and leaves blocked some of him or her. Oh well practice makes perfect right??
Thanks very much Andymoose for helping me with another birds name. I really appreciate it. And Thanks Vicky for also trying to figure out what this birds name was.

Cool capture Alan. His head isn't blocked, that's the main thing. Nice work buddy. What a mean look. I can't imagine what kind of mood that guy would be in if it wasn't spring. :-) Don

Hi Carol, you snuck in while I was replying :-) Thanks for your comments, I'm glad you enjoyed my bird and buds photo. YEA Spring is finally here in Arizona and the trees are the first to show there new leaves. One bad thing about spring is with the leaves in the trees it is going to be harder to get a clear shot of the birds.

I like the green buds and the bird sitting on the branch. Great first day of Spring photo. Carol

I heard that about the vegetation, I end up deleting a lot of shots because of this. It is Boat-tailed grackle (Brown Headed Black Bird) another nuisance bird. They often flock with the Starlings

He's got a mean look about him, Alan, but it's a great shot. I'll check my books when I get home and see if I can identify him for you. Vicki
