God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

Does Anyone Know What This Bird Is?

This little beauty surprised us with a visit yesterday!  I have never seen him before.  He is a medium sized bird ... pretty much like a cardinal or a bluebird.  Finches are much smaller so he is not a finch.  Whatever he is, I hope he comes back!  

I will also share with you these photos of a bluebird taking a bath.  I love when I can capture them doing this   : )

Oh the bluebird pics are adorable!
I do not have my bird book handy. I wonder if it is a female oriole? Looks like it. We had a male oriole at our last home. I put halved oranges out on the deck and he loved them!

my guess was also going to be a female oriole. We have them here trying to feed from the hummingbird feeders.

I had a yellow bird just like that in my holly bushes a few weeks ago! I could not get the camera in time though :-(

Will be interested to see what it is.
