Thanks, he sure is drawing a lot of attention from birders in the area. I talked to the lady who owns the feeder he is coming to and she said she has even had people drive down from Canada to see it.

Great portrait of this colorful bird!
There certainly have been plenty of storms to move him in the wrong direction.
