Lonely Bird

Only three birds in the yard this morning. Haven't seen this one before. Interesting dark brown feathers with blue highlights. Usually lots of birds chowing down in the morning. Where did they go? They left a pile of seed out on the table untouched. It should have been gone in minutes. Is it the smoke?

Hummingbirds love this bush. I have never seen a bird like this one eating the fruit.

Should be bright sun. I would have been shooting ISO 200 if not for the smoke. I would not have taken this shot if I had seen this bird before. I'm glad I did. I like the color and the detail is decent for ISO 2000-2500 as long as you don't zoom 100%.
