This is one of the most strikingly beautiful birds which occasionally make their way to Southern California. Paul Lehman found one in Jacumba in June of 2013, and I’ve been looking ever since. This morning this stunning adult male landed at my feeders.
I am a bit surprised that this bird knew how to navigate a sock feeder. Usually, only finches are interested in the nyger seed.
This is my 124th yard bird, and 188th Jacumba bird.
This bird is in hog-heaven.
