Phainopepla in Christmas colors

I happened upon this little guy on a walk a few weeks ago.

I think the colors tie in nicely to the Christmas theme.

May your holidays be filled with love and joy with no room for stress and worry!

Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow. It empties today of its strength.

Happiness is a choice. You can choose to be happy. There’s going to be stress in life, but it’s your choice whether you let it affect you or not.
~ Valerie Bertinelli

Merry Christmas!

    What a stunning bird Lisa, and stunning shots also. I have never seen this bird before and what a name it has.

    1. Yes! Thank you 😊 He even has a berry in his mouth, but you have to look closely. I always thought those were poisonous. But I guess not to him!! 😁

        I believe sometimes birds and animals can eat things that would be poisonous to us. And yes, I spotted the berry in his mouth in the middle photo πŸ™‚
