A quick look

by Linda
(Fort Wayne, Indiana)

It was light grey with a bright red crown or crest. It was plump like a dove but smaller. It was loud like a bluejay and fussing at a squirrel that was trying to get the same chips I had thrown out. I couldn't get my camera fast enough because I have MS and am really slow. He came three separate times during one day, staying only a short time. I haven't seen him in the past 2 days. Any ideas?
