A new back yard visitor

 

I looked out the kitchen window recently and spotted this visitor at the back yard buffet. It was alone, and it hung around long enough for quite a few photo opps. If you know what it is, I would be glad for an ID. Size-wise, it is about the same as a large blue jay or just a little larger.

Here are a few more poses I snapped as it moved from feeder to feeder:

I am sure I could find it in one of my bird books, but there hasn’t been enough time this sticky-hot and very busy week to do the research, so I am turning to my blog friends for help.

Thanks for visiting the back yard buffet today.

See you soon!
