One of my beautiful year-round visitors, looking for a spot at the feeders. Caught him blinking his third eyelid too. Shot through my sliding glass doors.

Thank you! I hope you can come east to see another! They are tough to photograph outside of my yard - very shy.

Thanks! They are very shy. I don't think I have many photos of them from outside of my yard because of that!

Great shot!
One question: the bird has that INTENSE red color in its head in real life or...? :-?

Their reds can be very intense. I have many photos of this bird where it looks like I saturated the reds, but I tend to stay away from doing that. This also happens with my bright orange Orioles - the color is just so intense on the bird!!! :D The reds really come out on overcast days too!

Wow! O.O They are really "intense" in real life then! :D Beautiful and interesting birds, indeed.
I really like your photos since a long time, keep up the good work! ^^ Greetings from Mexico :rose: (we have beautiful birds, too :) )
