Look who showed up: Grosbeaks

I had a pair of Grosbeak in the garden over the weekend - a new garden bird for me! I haven't seen them since which is really sad.

Nice photo- they look pretty cute sitting outside their "cabin."

I've had them in my yard only briefly in the springs, then they're gone. I've seen them all summer up at Hasty Brook though.

Looks like they're definitely ready to set up "housekeeping!" What a handsome couple.

Hi Lynne and RuthieJ, unfortunately it looks like the Grosbeaks have moved on...... I guess the accommodation looked a little drab in this area. Oh well the Indigo is still hanging around so that's cool. I also have my first nesting pair of Chickadees this year so that's exciting.

BTW, the feeder in the pic is falling apart so I guess I have to replace it at some stage. It was given to me as a gift and it isn't exactly a robust outdoor feeder but I figured I would stick it out and see. Turns out that the birds love it!
