Very nice image with an excellent view of that seed crushing beak and singing pose!

Welcome to my home state. If you're a storm chaser/photographer you came to the right place :-) 

Outstanding photo.

Thanks for sharing.

A perfect singing pose, Sandy! The open beak with the head tilted back brings this image to life.

Interesting bird with a strange looking beak. Must be a specialty type food they eat. Nice calling pose. Well done Sandy.
