This is actually Tom and Tate enjoying the pergola
I typically don't take my binoculars, but usually have to come back to the house to get them, and again this morning being no exception. So why did I come back for binos this morning- A new visitor to my garden and to the neighborhood I believe as I hadn't seen him before and this terrain isn't typical for the Trogans
and this is cropped so you can see the detail.
A very exciting siting for me. A personal first, AND in my backyard.
This morning the Trogan was feeding on insects, it would fly out, do a quick loop, similar to the way Flycatchers catch bugs, and then return to perch with a morsel (looked to be caterpillars).
The few times it flew a distance it flies in a peaks and valleys motion.
Also on this mornings, not year round visitor sighting list, Blue-Gray Tanager, Vireo (still trying to decide exactly which one), groove-billed Ani, oh shoot, there were more I just can't think of them at the moment.
