Isn't it interesting?

You can see another juvenile with yellow but no red feathers if you keep reading.

You are right, Ally, I took the photo through the window. :)

Red is the characteristic colour of iron. When you need some iron badly enough; well then, extreme measures must be taken. We've all been there. I know I have.

SS, are you going to donate some iron to this yellow chested fellow sufferer?? LOL

Yes Ma'am, but I'm running low on iron myself. Home Depot only has extruded aluminum bars in stock. My nails are coated with some nasty toxic stuff. I will need to go directly to the source (not the store) and get you some iron. How about Hematite and a little Magnetite just to show off?
You better be serious about this challenge because I had to haul these ores up from the basement.

SS, if you have serious iron deficiency, ask your doctor to send you to hospital for iron infusion. You will be given iron through IV for a few hours. Afterwards, you will be an iron man! :)

Some have claimed that I'm already full of irony. Irony man? I can't wait for "Irony Man II" ... can you?

Oh well, here comes Iron Deficiency II!!!


I assume it is a juvenile male, perhaps a baby from the first bird?


It came a few times today. I have no sunflower seeds left. Am going to buy some after I post this message.


It looked seriously anemic, because it has no red feathers at all.
