The tiny and the puzzle

I knew who that was in the grass, the handsome flicker. Not possible to get closer. Also this is the position most perilous for the flicker,.. head down. a hawk could swoop down and make it a meal.
This is the puzzle bird, either a female or young indigo bunting or maybe a young blue grosbeak, but I'll err on the side of indigo bunting. We studied each other. I just knew it was something I'd never seen before.

They're back, my beloved kinglets. Hummers are hard to photograph because they zoom past so fast. Kinglets are hard because they're also tiny and flit very fast.

They're there and then they're gone, flit-scooter birds.
