Phyrrhuloxia Fever 5/14/2007

The Phyrrhuloxia caught my attention early in the week as he darted in and out, grabbing a seed and in a flash was gone again. I have to admit to a frame of two of birdless perches where this little guy was concerned. I was determined to photograph this elusive bird. When he finally teed up on this stump I had time to get off a few frames before he was gone again.
