Beautiful photos of a beautiful bird. We get one or two annually in the last days of April or first few days of May, and two appeared right on schedule last week. Haven't seen a male in over a week, but we did get a couple of females over the weekend.

Think how uninteresting this bird would be without that small red patch.

Yes, definitely worth the wait. :)
😁 Sure was. Thanks Allan.

Appreciate the comment. They seem to pass through here about this time. I just started this backyard bird stuff late lat April to pass the time, and he was one of the first birds I saw, but didn’t get a decent image. Kinda hooked me.
Excellent first image! Strong composition, lighting and processing! Wonderful fine details!
Thanks Karen. Was happy he hopped up there for a moment.
Man what a great image the first one is, perfect pose, color background and you caught him looking at just the perfect angle.
Thanks Andreas. This body is so quick to acquire focus, it’s like cheating.
