Lauren's backyard getting better everyday

I was so jealous of Cindy when she called me to say she had a painted bunting at her feeder. also happy. I came home today while doing yard work, had my camera as always outside when I noticed a pretty green bird .Thought it was a finch was snapping pictures of it and as I moved to the front of the cage I realized there was another bird there .To my amazement it was the male. I was so excited he spooked and flew away. but saw him again later in my bushes. Couldn't Wait to phone Cindy, yea  a set for both of us.
