The Grosbeaks Visit

Rose-breasted grosbeak Evening grosbeakThe flocks of birds at the feeders today was so varied! It was really colorful out there today, and I couldn’t stop taking pictures.

We’ve had Grosbeaks before, but not very often. Today we got both Evening Grosbeaks (the yellow ones) and Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks. We probably had six or seven pair of each, which is very neat.

He wants to find a nice shady place to move them to, to save them. They need deep shade, and we don’t really haven any place cultivated that will get them enough shade.

I want to hand one from the post at the end of the window box run, but I haven’t figured out where to put the other yet.
