Kathy Virtue saw it first, wondering what the dark-bodied red-rumped bird was on the bird bath. We watched it for about 15-20 minutes as it hopped around in the lilac and foraged under the hops in the little backyard garden Kelly grows at the coffee shop. It mewed once and we cheered. Great bird with good coffee, it doesn't get much better. --Kathy and Doug, Kelly and Bartshe, Paul, Chris, Justin, and others
