A bird in a bush




I'll move back so you can see where I found the bird (a warbler? a finch?)
and the bush (Russian sage).

 See him?

  1. A tweeter in Russian sage? Hmmmmm ... I won't say what I'm thinking, but that is mighty suspicious! LOL As well as some beautiful pics of a little yellow bird surrounded by lovely purple flowers.

  3. I went to whatbird.com and found this about the yellow-bellied flycatcher, "Small flycatcher with olive-green upperparts, yellow underparts, and olive-green wash on breast. Spectacles are pale yellow. The wings are dark with two white bars". Whatever it is, it looks beautiful in that sage.

  5. Possibly a Less Gold Finch. Do you get these in your area? I know where I live in Tucson, we get a lot of them. Small bird with a loud sound.

  6. Ooh so pretty the yellow and the purple! Love colorful birds. We just have mean jay birds and cardinals.

  7. I'm voting Lessor Goldfinch. They have stubby beaks like that, are small, and a dull yellow color (compared to the American Goldfinch which is BRIGHT yellow -- almost hurts your eyes).
