PIC OF THE WEEK: 03/05/18 • PREVIOUS WEEKALL 2018 PICSNEXT WEEK

Where: Richmond, VA
Notes:This image was captured just down the road from my house shortly after relocating to northside Richmond. One of the blessings of being in an established neighborhood is that the landscaping has had some time to mature. Having noticed these bushes full of fruit, it was just a matter of time before they became ripe and desirable to these amazingly beautiful birds. The best way to find this species, hands down, is by sound. Nothing else in the bird world sounds like them, so it is an easy ID. I often describe it as a weedy-dog whistle. It’s very high pitched and is often amplified, because they are often seen in large flocks. Once these nomadic birds find a plentiful batch of berries, they tend to go into a feeding frenzy until every last morsel is gone. So as I travel the local roads, I watch for probably food sources. Then it is just a matter of luck (or Blessed) timing, to witness the the feast.

Special thanks to the support of the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries for including this image in the 2018 Virginia Wildlife Calendar for the month of March.
