Pyrrhuloxia At Our Patio Fountain   3 comments

We haven’t seen too many Pyrrhuoxias coming to the feeder and fountain this summer,

but this guy is interested in cooling off from our triple-digit temperatures here in Tucson.

This Pyrrhuoxia looks like an immature male because of the dark bill. Adults have a yellow bill.
