Walking through the back gate something caught my eye this afternoon. Luckily I had my camera and I was able to get several good shots of this little (girl)? I believe from my bird books that it's a female black headed grosbeak. I'm trusting my bird friends to straighten me out. I'd seen the other one the more brilliant colored last week but I wasn't quick enough to get a picture. This one was quite trusting and it made me think it was a juvenile. I tried to keep Rascal out of that area to give it a chance to join the others.
I decided today that I'm going to look for a sundial with the saying "I Count Only the Golden Hours". That will be my gift to myself.
God bless you, Diane
