I see them often here in town. they are (to me) the most beautiful "garden-bird" -Birds that come visit your garden. I'll often tell my family, I've seen my bird again today - as if they belong to me and as if it's the same bird visiting. hahaha
You might get me out of the bush, but you won't get the bush out of me, it's deep in my heart
