    We’ve been keeping our birdfeeder stocked, so I think we’ve seen every bird nesting anywhere near our house — but we haven’t seen one of these. Maybe they like suburbia better. 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

    Definitely a suburban bird. 🙂
    The book says they like open areas, like meadows and clearcuts, where there are trees but lots of space.

    There is a pair and they both look like this male. I am assuming they’re fighting for someone’s affection but I haven’t seen her around yet.
