New Plumage Begins.



my Little Prince came to visit me tonight with his new plumage just beginning to show. Little dabs of snow white spots were visible for all to see. He`s so oblivious to how closely I watch him and take note that he`s always the last to arrive and the first to leave. :0(

On another note. I enclose two picture of another visitor who I call Road Runner. He looks like a Sparrow and probably is. He doesn`t act like one and is in fact more streamline and his feathers are more defined by pencil like outlining. He has nothing to do with any of the other sparrows that visit and darts in and out of the apple tree like Road Runner off the t.v.. He seldom stays still even when eating, it`s like he`s been on e numbers and caffeine all day. I had to anticipate where he was going to land then snap the shots.
