Highbridge Aviary.

We spent a few hours with friends today. Enjoyed breakfast, watched birds at the feeders (Robins, Cardinals, Blue Jays, Finches, Sparrows, Hairy and Downy Woodpeckers, Nuthatches and Pine Grosbeaks), we watch Nick work on the wood pile and of course we watched the Packers game. Oh and one final thing I think I may have discovered a "new bird species". See details below.

A rare sighting for this area.
I believe this is a tangerine tuft crested, florescent breasted Highbridge Dove.
