More Eastern Spinebill ?
On Saturday as I walked under a crab apple to a chorus of about 1/2 dozen silver eyes I heard a fluttering commotion and looked up to see this guy amongst them. He was kind enough to hang around for 1/2 hour or so and eventually left his green little pals to seek out some solitude.
As best I can ascertain this is an immature Eastern Spinebill but I may be way off track here.
Again he/it was quick and agile and I was surprised to see this shot of him in flight.
Here is one of the few Silver eyes he cavorted and competed with.
This following shot was taken in the Crab apple.
Then he headed out the back and called to alert me to his whereabouts once I thought he had departed, where he found himself some nectar.
Then he was off.
