They Give Color To My Day

The mere studying of the birds, seeking mere knowledge of them, is not enough. You must live with the birds, so to speak; have daily and seasonal associations with them before they come to mean much to you. Then, as they linger about your house or your camp, or as you see them in your walks, they are a part of your life, and help give tone and color to your day.

I've never picked up on the character of individual birds, only an anthropomorphic idea based on what they look like. This one seems aggressively cross. (And pretty of course.)
