Some great pictures of the new Vermilion Bird today. Have you seen this bird. Well not really. Just a joke. Actually just some photos of the birds in the backyard that have red or vermilion on them or around them. The ABC Meme is at the letter "V" for vermilion this week.
There are vermilion birds like the Vermilion Flycatcher and I found out that in China the Vermilion bird is one of the four symbols of the Chinese Constellations:
"The Vermilion bird is an elegant and noble bird in both appearance and behavior, it is very selective in what it eats and where it perches, with its feathers in many different hues of vermilion." (wiki)
I don't have any of these flycatchers or Chinese birds in my backyard but I do have fun with the Northern Flickers and the Hummingbirds and my other friendly birds at the feeders. So here are a few shots I took over the last few weeks.
bit of red on him. Below are the Flickers at my feeders. They are very playful and fun to watch. We are having Flicker Madness at my house lately as it has been so cold.
Don't forget to check out my twitter page, my Facebook page, my YouTube site.

Now it is time to say goodnight to the little hummers as they dance their ballet guarding the feeder above.
and the Flicker sits on the tree saying goodnight to me each night. A life with birds is a good life.

I did find one Trumpeter Swan out in a field of pumpkins along with five youngsters also. Wondering if it is the same family that always comes to this field.
Oh and the big find was a Kestrel on a tree out
at Maber farms. What a beautiful bird.
