I hurried to the living room window hoping and there it was on a small tree trunk. This time success even through the dirty window.
Near that small tree is a dead tree trunk and a perfect spot to grab a snack. She was all around the bottom of the tree trunk and I just keep clicking. Here I caught her with her wings out and was able to capture the white markings on her wings. At least I'm fairly sure it is a female. Even though the photos aren't super I don't see the red line from bill to throat that would indicate a male.
This profile shot is my favorite. Hubs teased me that I chased her all around the house. I started out just being happy I had even seen this beauty at the edge of the woods but my persistance paid off and I have photos to prove she was really here.
