A New Visitor


As the seasons change, the bird species that visit the feeders change too.


I heard this shy little character long before I saw it. A sweet, mournful whistle that I hadn't heard before.


I eventually spotted her perched in the trees but it was several more days before she finally plucked up the courage to come to the feeders.
