A Special Visitor
I love to sit on my back porch and look at my wonderfully overgrown flower beds with no special order to anything, just lots of colour. I have several birdbaths set amid the flowers, one quite close to the porch. I sit and watch the various visitors. Mainly I see Sparrows, Chickadees and Robins coming for a drink or maybe having a bath. Today I happened to be watching when this gorgeous Western Tanager came by. He didn't stay more than 10 seconds and I'm so glad I was watching at that exact time. Now maybe he has come before and I just haven't seen him. I'll be on the look-out from now on. ( This is an image I downloaded from the internet. No way could I have gotten to my camera in time to capture his beauty).
