Such shameless flashy birds, with their brazen red tails and raucous chorus.
Love em to bits. :-)

It’s their raucous cry that tells us they are here – and I always get excited when I see them :D thanks Charles

They certainly beat a spectacular retreat!

they do indeed – they’re not too keen on humans (and rightly so) :)

It sure does, Gabe. They are quite spectacular. we have lived in our current house for nearly 12 years and I have never seen them in this area, but last week, I heard my husband yell to come outside to look, and there they were flying overhead, with their unmistakable screeching

wow, that is fantastic bb :D – they are very exciting to come across, so free and powerful – let’s hope they keep coming back to your place.
