A visitor on the vine

There are some grapes from last summer which we didn't have a chance to take down. They dried on the vine and turned into raisins.
I expect this little guest was attracted by them, because I noticed him pecking here and there last morning. Isn't he pretty?

Very pretty shade of blue! It's funny, we have a bluebird-albeit a much different species here in southern US-that's been hopping around our backyard every morning. I see him through my kitchen window, pecking around through the frost hoping for a bite to eat!

What an odd beak.

What a beautiful bird. I enjoy your site and reading about your life in Israel. We have a bluebird here in the U.S. called the Western Bluebird. I was out taking pictures of them this Fall as they were migrating through.
At this link

A Blessed Christmas.
