Yellow-crowned Bishop

Through other birding friends, I discovered this Yellow-crowned Bishop at the San Diego Creek in Irvine, Ca.  It's a male.  He has drawn a lot of attention.  This species is a non-native bird from Africa.  It's numbers were started from caged bird escapees/pets  He has the sweetest peep and the most enjoyable personality to watch.  In flight he is light and fluffy and buzzes around like a bumble bee.  A stunning bird.
