We normally see the adults around here in early May. This is the first one we have seen in the Fall.

Not sure about the ID Jim, but what a beautiful shot.
Thanks, Louie. Perhaps some others will chime in on the ID.

This bird was enjoying a drink from our watering station and I sneaked around the corner of the house to get a shot. I spooked him, but fortunately he lit on a nearby limb for the first posted shot.

Glad you spotted this pretty guy and got some nice shots, also! Try a little cropping on that first one (tighter in lower left corner and remove white blob on right) and I think you will even happier with that fine shot!
