Comments

Somewhat overexposed in the strong afternoon light streaming from the left. Note the non-green crown (blue to my eye), pale auriculars and curved wing tips.

Observation details

This "blue-headed" bird was reported in the prior report as an RTHU because of the darkness in the auriculars. I tried to follow this bird in the front yard. It regularly returned to the feeder. The many RTHUs gave it much competition for feeder space.
