She is nice. I didn't talk to her last visit. I had called on the cell phone and left a message. She called my house (I might have left my number in the visitor's log) and my wife called me. I spent about 1.5 hours in the back and took tons of pics. The bird seemed less feisty than the first visit but, still did some chasing. Perched with it's back to me mostly on the feeder. I had to switch positions and got no in flight with the wings out shots this time. I need to be quicker with the photos. Good idea with the light, I bet the bird would appreciate the warmth also. Have any company? Kevin

  Yes indeed!

  I suggested to Sharon that she go to a pet store and get a reptile heat
  lamp so she doesn't have to switch out the feeders so often.
