Such a sweet little bird. Does it sing as sweetly?

Diane AZ said...

Steph, they do make a sweet call that sounds like "chee" especially when humans are present.

Ah ... wonderful yellows shared this week. Love them all but your mosaic is quite special with the two-toned highlights. I didn't share yellows this week but am glad I picked this one up while I was here. Wishing you and yours a joyous holiday!
Hugs and blessings,

I love that yellow chested bird. We have varieties of yellow birds back home, dad breeds them.

Love cactus flowers! It's wonderful to know that from a prickly cactus, a beautiful flower can still be found.
