This little beauty was really tame, almost under your feet, but I still did not manage a good photo.

I wonder if JenB and DB know about these nice birdie photos..........I'll have to go poke them, they are missing out and all is lost on me just looking at the nice birdies and not even knowing which is which!!!

This should be the last one for this page............. :popcorn: :popcorn:
