It makes me laugh sometimes. I think, how can I have lived this long and not know every bird in my backyard? But then, there are a lot of them out there and some just pass through. It's fun trying, anyway. There is always something to surprise you.
Someone out there knows just what these love birds are with no problem. But I've been through Peterson's and Sibley's, looking for this slightly-bigger-than-a-robin size bird, gross beak type bill, gray body with a tiny bit of mauve in the feathers, and that white bib under the chin and I'm coming up empty.
Could they be female cowbirds? But why are they dancing together?
I know this guy below. He thinks its grumpy gray today, too.
