Something Over Tea

After an absence of several weeks, Spotty the Common Fiscal has started visiting the garden again. It is still very wary – probably because of the cats next door – yet is gradually coming ever closer to where I am sitting. In these photographs Spotty is perched on a nearby branch: you can clearly see the hooked beak, the eponymous dark spot, and the ring which makes this bird easily stand out from other fiscals visiting the garden.

This is a typical ‘alert’ stance.

Here you can see the other side of this handsome bird as well as catch the warm brown eyes and the bristles below the beak.
