birdfeeder excitement

Spring migration is in full swing these days. Lately, at the feeders there have been chipping sparrows, goldfinches, cardinals, jays, chickadees, titmice, and this morning's big sighting - a male rose-breasted grosbeak. I got a good look at this hadsome devil for several minutes while I dunked my teabag and he stuffed his face.

I'm anxiously looking forward to our birding trip to Letchworth next week...

I got to see him today (Heidi's grosbeak, not the one in the picture), and he is quite the handsome devil. A very, very striking bird!

This is to say nothing of the multiple goldfinches, and the baby squirrel!
