  2. I’m glad you saw and photographed another life bird, Donna. It’s good to focus on females, because they often get too little press. πŸ™‚
    It took me a long time to recognize female RWBBs, but knowing them well really helps rule out some other species, especially some of the confusingly marked sparrows. At least that was true for me.

    • Thank you, Steve! πŸ’ƒπŸ˜Š Not until I learned she wasn’t anyway near a red color to match her male partner, it got easier IDing this gal, lol. How she ended up yellowish is funny. The females can really be difficult at times for me!
