My first male Rose-breasted grosbeak just showed up - I forget how spectacular they are

(from Google images)



He seemed to be confused how to get a meal from the feeder though....

1. They are spectacular, aren't they?

I am always thrilled to see one at my feeders.

3. Black headed grosbeaks, western tanagers, and a bullock's oriole visited this week

Several dozen violet-green swallows swoop overhead and the black chinned hummingbirds’ courtship dance in a clearing between junipers is mesmerizing.

5. Having moved from CO to PA

we saw our first last year. Hope he visits again.

They're fun to listen to, also - robin-like, but somewhat livelier.

6. I have a flock of them coming to my feeders during the day.

Along with chickadees, nuthatches, mourning doves, purple finches, goldfinches, chipping sparrows, hummingbirds and 1 pine grosbeak. In the yard foraging on the ground there are starlings, red wing black birds, grackles, robins, and juncos.
