Trishrg 04/16/13 06:40 pm Nice bird! Don't you just love spring???
Pam 04/19/13 12:34 pm Never seen one. Lucky you :-)
Whilst we have been away a huge cupressus tree has been chopped down in an adjoining garden. It has given us a lot more light as the sun goes down which is nice but my feeling is that the bird numbers have reduced. They used to fly into that tree for cover, particularly when the sparrowhawk is around. One good thing is that pigeons used to nest in it, so not so many of those around now.
Anne-UK1 04/20/13 08:59 am I think I was lucky to happen to be looking at just the right time, as I suspect it was just passing through. It certainly was an impressive little thing. I remembered afterwards I have seen one out there once before but that was a few years ago and later in the year, so while the bright orangey plumage was still striking and impossible to miss it was nothing like as vivid as this male's spring colours. A very smart little bird.

A shame about your neighbour's big tree. I'm sure the birds will adapt in time though and more light (plus less pigeons) to your garden cant be a bad thing.
