Glad I could help Telma!

They really are cure birds but they are so common in most of America that we forget LOL

During the summer it is not uncommon for there to be more than a dozen at a time in my backyard. They really are fun to watch.

Take care!

"Haemorhous mexicanus"...! :) Thank you so much for your enlightening comment.
