I hope you love birds too. It is economical. It saves going to heaven.

The Red Bishop on my fence post...
The Bishops have returned to my garden this Spring and I was so excited! The male's buzzing song alerting the female to the nest he's building for her is always the first to alert me of their return and, contrary to the male, the female is brown and very inconspicuous. He only carries these colours during the breeding season and in Winter reverts to brown similar to the female.
