Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Had two Rose-breasted Grosbeaks take a pit-stop to our feeders for some bird chow. Got close enough to watch the beaks work over some sunflower seeds. Amazing to see the beaks and tongue in action. A first of year for our feeders. -Harry

Alas, most of migration is only a fond memory, but there are still things to be seen.  Cliff Swallows are checking out their newly constructed homes.

The Great Horned Owlets are still around, but probably not for long. Pete.
