After a busy day I like sitting on my back porch and playing fetch with my dogs. After they settle down we watch the local birds line up for their version of a soup line. I have the same birds return all the time. The doves line my back fence every day. Every once in a while something new shows up. Here is a bird I have never seen before. It is a "Painted Bushing" and is native to Texas but in all the time I have lived here I have never seen one. At first I thought it was a wild parrot but when I looked closer through the lens I knew it wasn't a parrot.
I read up on them and they are getting to be rare because of over population. They are a small bird but very beautiful. Enjoy!
