Beautiful iridescent bird
by Rose Drake
We have 2 birds I have never seen before. They are larger than a sparrow but smaller than a robin. They look "plump" with a iridescent black blue body with a pure white chest. Their wings when folded, are just as long as their body. Beak is short and black. When sitting the are very compact on the branch or pool. They perch close by and watch me. They do not seen frightened being so close...about 3 ft away. I have not been able to get a picture yet. They were by the pool daily at the end of MAY. I did not see them for about three weeks. My husband saw one of them yesterday. They seem very inquisitive! They are absolutely beautiful.
