Parlay View Parsnip ?, originally uploaded by angryparsnip.

It's time for my Monday morning post and Thank You Eryl for the
wonderful subject line today.

visible, and when inside the canopy of leaves quite impossible to see.

But what a handsome friendly tiny bird. From his light gray/silver

The only problem is they love my Tangelo's as much as I do.

    I am so amazed by all the birds I can see at my home. And I think he is very sweet too !

  5. Wonderful off-balance, perchy picture.

  6. He looks just like our robin - without the red breast but the same cheeky attitude:)

  7. How cute, and he's my favourite sort of greenish-gray.

  8. I love bird watching. You have a front row seat. Very nice and a beautiful bird.

  9. Your little Verdin is adorable, great capture! I sometimes seeing them trying to get nectar from the hummingbird feeder.
