Rare visitor to our spot and the bird responsible for once denuding our pond of a considerable number of small fish!
All the same, a treat!
We are fortunate where we live that we get visits from so many birds. Even though Observatory has a golf course in the valley and a lot of trees and green space, I still smile and count my blessings that I have managed to photograph 39 species and eyeballed at least a dozen more. And I am sure there are a quite a few I have either missed or have yet to spot.
And we are right in the middle of suburbia!
