Monday Photo Shoot #4 -- On the Wing

John Scalzi says: "It's Monday -- and that means it's time for a Monday Photo Shoot! To remind everyone: I hand offer a suggestion for a photograph to share, and then you either go out and take that picture or share a photo with that theme that you already have. Pretty easy stuff. This week:

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Get a shot of one of our fine feathered friends (preferably undomesticated)."

John further explains, "I'm certain we'll do this (or a variation thereof) more than once, because birds are so much fun to photograph."

Invasion of the 'chair snatcher'...similiar to a nut hatcher.

Gosh, I shoulda been a comedienne, eh?  That is...or was, my chair.  And that's my fire poking stick, too!

Here's some close-ups of the chair snatcher.  I think it is a Black Rosy-Finch aka Leucosticte atrata.  Yeah,'s a bird.

That`s a pretty bird, what is it ? :-)  I`ve not done this before, do I need to leave a link when I post the photo?  Sandra xxx

Sandra, Can't find the bird in my field guide, maybe a tanager?  To participate go to John Scalzi's journal, By The Way, and yes, leave a link in the comment for the Monday Photo Shoot entry.

Coy, Thank you!  And thanks for stopping by to say hi!
