These things are as rare as hens teeth in our neck of the woods. I've seen one in 25 years. So when this one showed up just before lunch and stuck around for a couple hours I was thrilled.

It also continues my wife's streak of calling what rare bird will show up in our yard that year. On a warm February afternoon she looked at me and said, "This year I want a Red-Headed Woodpecker in the yard." Bam!!

I only wish it worked that way for PowerBall. LOL

Such a striking looking bird, and a great capture, Jake.

What a thrill to have such a rare visitor.
