Beautiful bird and I love the coloring. I don't think I've seen one like this before. I think s/he is posing for you.

His blue and brown look very pretty together!

This may be a nuisance bird,but you have shown us that it is also very beautiful. I love the bokeh.

Ken Schneider said...

This just proves that a bird need not be rare or even nice to be an object of beauty. Very nice pose and exposure.

Such wonderful photos of the woodpecker and the cow bird!

Last summer a little momma junco was hounded by two giant cowbird babies to "feed me, feed me". She was exhausted trying to keep them satiated. Poor little thing!

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

Wow, this is a fabulous photo of a gorgeous bird.

Hilary said...

Wonderful capture and beautiful bokeh. I love their lovely liquid like sounds.

Aren't cowbirds the ones that bob their heads when they walk? I see them as a pair every once in awhile in my yard.

Beautiful colors on that bird - great photo.

Carletta said...

Wow Kerri, such a beautiful shot!
I do think the cowbird is a lovely one but too many at the feeder and my others birds are without much to eat. :)
I haven't seen any since fall.

Brian King said...

A beautiful photo! Most people don't think of them as pretty, but in the right light...

Wow, what a gorgeous shot!

Stewart M said...

Thats a great looking bird - shows you dont have to be all kinds of colours to look good. Do these birds lay there eggs in other birds nests?

Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

Me again - I should have clicked the wikipedia link! Yes, they do!

Esther Joy said...

A lovely picture of a bird that is not my favorite bird! They just make me mad when they get other birds to hatch and raise their young... especially when I actually catch them in the act of throwing out the surrogate's eggs!

Mary Howell Cromer said...

STUNNING!

Rajesh said...

Lovely bird, i am seeing it for the first time.

Wally Jones said...

Very nice photograph of a bird with a not-so-nice reputation! He looks good dressed up and in the right light. Good job!
