They stripped the berries off my Nandina bushes and descended on the bird bath – I refilled it at least 5-6 times through the day. They move in groups - flying off all of a sudden, and flying back in to the bird bath on the deck just as suddenly.
I was planning to finish some painting that day, but knowing that they usually stay just one day, instead I sat on a stool at the kitchen window with my camera set up on a tripod, my knitting and a book on CD – multi-tasking at its best.
I’ve always thought these are the strangest looking birds with their black masks, but they sure are entertaining.
