And they come en masse
occasionally spooked but not in flight for long
there's magnolia seeds to be had!
this one was the sentry;
in a rare moment his beak is closed
rest assured he had his eye on me taking photo after photo of the hoard that decended into three
trees in my front yard. They are noisy, bossy, skittish birds but
the reward is
Just look at that wicked lime green of the flight feathers in the above photo!
They blend so well into the trees that if I didn't do super zoom in photoshop you
couldn't tell they were there.
*except for all the seed pods they knock off onto the ground & street!
