I like seeing them all puffed up also when it's cold out and I really love their delicate coloring. Excellent details (love all the many layers of feathers in her wing!) and beautiful colors, Anita. #11241470

I too have always loved these birds. Pretty feather detail and color. I have a ground feeder for them, but they have to get in quick before the ibises take over when I fill it. #11241477
