Gray Weather And Feathers

The feathers seemed to match the weather in my backyard yesterday.  When I went out to fill the feeders, the skies were gray and overcast and the first four birds to show up seemed color coordinated with the conditions.

The gray skies didn’t last long though, and as soon as the sun popped through the clouds Mr. Vibrant himself showed up in all his glory.

He really is like a ray of sunshine whenever he makes an appearance!
