Yellow Bird...

This little yellow bird has been visiting our pyracantha bush outside the den window for several days. I'm pretty sure it's a yellow warbler. Notice it's sharp beak, so it isn't a lesser goldfinch.  One day I saw it and it had reddish brown marks on its breast.  Today I had my camera at the ready, but he/she wouldn't turn to face me and he moves quickly and doesn't stay around long. But I did get these two photos.


I took these through two glass panes.  The patio window door was open, so they came out pretty well considering.

Below is my entry for Wanda's Art Challenge

 Autumn Leaves.
I tried to be different and select the picture that did not have the traditional fall colors.

It's a pretty little bird, Chris - well caught!
I really like your Autumn Leaves - the subtle colours are very pleasing and allow the structure prominence.

Very nice little bird, bet it has a beautiful warble.

Love Wanda's art challenge, nice to see what you different ladies come up with.

Great art challenge piece. I like the non traditional color choices.
I do like your little visitor too. Great capture.

Shouldn't as yellow bird be "high in banana tree" or is my age showing?
Lovely photos and superb art.

He/she posed very well for you! We had a great wind on Friday and now, as our 5 year old said "the trees are naked!"

If you're showing your age, then so am I because that's what it was meant to be, only I couldn't remember the second line.
AJ, I was sure I left you a comment on your blog, but it doesn't show up. It may be that I forgot to submit it. Sorry. But thanks for all your lovely comments on mine.

Me, I just would not know if it was a new visitor or a repeat one.
