Everything That Glitters…

You know how the saying goes – Everything that glitters isn’t gold.
Well, the reverse is true as well – Everything that’s gold doesn’t necessarily glitter…sometimes it gleams!  Like the golden eye of this Brown Thrasher.

Though his gleaming glare and his blade-like beak give him a rather sinister appearance, I have found these birds to be more bashful than brutish.

This guy typically shows up to enjoy some of the Bark Butter that I spread on the branch, but if someone else arrives, he tends to be quick to relinquish the territory.


I love his rich coppers and creams against the blurry backdrop of the autumn leaves.
