What Is This Bird?
(Scott City, KS)
A bird of this type has visited my farm in western Kansas for over twenty years. First showed up and nested in a shed. She came back for years. She is not a flighty type and is quite tolerant of me. She no longer nests in the shed as I have a good door on it now. Not sure where the nest is. She has kind a whistle to her sound. I can not identify by using the books. The breast is king of apricot colored. I do not think I have seen a male. I believe this is a female.
