Birds are smart in their own way. They have good eye sight and seem to be aware of most everything around them. Now that most of the migrating species have moved on, there remain only House Sparrows, Grackles and Blue Jays who are becoming more relaxed in my presence. So when a new visitor shows up I notice and immediately grab the camera. This "foxy-brown bird that lurks in eastern thickets" * is reluctant to have its picture taken on the ground where its long tail and "rufous-brown above" are so well set-off. The moment it spots me at the window or door, it hops off into the greenery and up to the treetops where I manage to collect a few angles in any case.
