"And here I thought I was special! A male Pintail Whydah chose my backyard as his playground in the Spring of 2007. I live in East Orange in Southern California -- just a few miles from Tustin. I felt so blessed! Every morning I looked forward to seeing him and his antics and hearing his high-pitched sounds. I got quite attached to the little fellow. He never seemed to be very successful with the ladies though. Not that he didn't try... Then mid October, one day of cool weather and drizzle, and he vanished. I hoped he had simply decided to move on to warmer climates. Bad timing though, as a few days later the devastating San Diego wildfires started and raged on for days. I thought of Whydee and hoped he had made it through. Then this Spring (May 12), to my amazement, there he stood in the middle of my lawn, letting me know with his familiar racket that he was back. He had lost his tail and his breeding plumage, but I just knew it was him. He has been hanging around ever since, looking prettier and his tail growing every day. Throughout the day, he comes and taps on the windows. He is very assertive and unafraid, but still has no success with the female population of assorted species who frequent my bird feeder. I am now thinking that I should call the local pet shops and find him a mate. I feel I owe him that... Is that crazy? "
