Special thanks to Nancy for choosing to take home "Given To Fly" (the first flight of a white sparrow)! It was great talking with you and I love that you are an avid bird/animal explorer:)
Special thanks to Johanna too for finding "Just Peachy" the perfect spot in her home:) I look forward to getting started on your Lucky portrait!
Fat Little Birds make me soooo happy!!
This bird is a Red Billed Leiothrix and although they are present in Hawaii, they are not all as inviting as this little fellow. Usually Leiothrix are introverts of the bird world, hiding or snuggling with their mates and singing them sweet songs. I guess this guy is still searching for his soulmate, so he's trying out new tactics to lure the ladies, like sitting on fences and giving the *wink!*wink!
If he doesn't find someone fast, I might just have to keep him for myself!
