Redwing Gorging on the Juniper Berries

It was not my intention to try photograph this bird. It was pure chance I saw it when driving past sitting in the juniper bush gorging itself on the berries.  It was the red flash of feathers that caught my attention. Stopped the car and thought it would be gone at the sight of me, but no, it was not bothered by me at all. It was a very unexpected but pleasurable experience as I had never seen one before.
