|Dianne Cage: May 5, 2011|
My very favorite Easter present this year happened Good Friday about 12:30.
Mike and I were having a light lunch in our dinning room that has a big picture window looking out on to a magnificent live oak tree and patio that circles around a goldfish pond /bird bath. We have several bird feeders scattered around the area that Mike keeps full of bird seed.
There are three feeders, maybe a foot from the window, so you feel you are on the patio as you are so close. The most beautiful bird that we had never seen lit on the feeder. It was maybe as big as a Robin. The bird was black above and on head, with beautiful white patches on wings. Its breast was brilliant red and its belly was white.
The bird was not shy, very coquettish. I was so excited, I almost choked on my artichoke. We got the North American Bird Book out and found we had a male Rose-breasted Grosbeak and his mate visiting in our gardens.
