Ptooey!


Male Saffron Finch (Sicalis flaveola)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii

When I uploaded this photo from the camera to to my computer I had to chuckle.  I had been photographing this male Saffron Finch (Sicalis flaveola)  as he drank water from our ground-level bird bath.  By chance, I snapped this photo just as a few droplets of water fell from his bill.  It looked to me as though he was spitting:  Ptooey!
