“Mr Zebra” has been living in our backyard in Coppell, Texas since October 2019. Took us a while to identify him since he is not native to North Texas and must have been someone’s pet at some point. He was easy to approach at first but has become increasingly more wild and skittish, making photography hard. He thinks he is a sparrow and lives with his sparrow family in our Red Tip bushes. He is very vocal and fusses at me if there is no food in the feeder! Note how he can almost fit his entire body into the hole of the feeder in the one photo. This is typical behavior for him.
