While I'm still waiting for more Pine Siskins and other irrupting winter finches, a good size group of 10 Evening Grosbeaks visited the tray feeder today. Sorry for the quality of this image of 7 of those 10 grosbeaks (taken through a window into the sun!)
Prior to today, the largest group of Evening Grosbeaks to ever visit my feeders was seven, and this just occurred earlier this fall. Wouldn't it be great if every visit this season was from a growing number of grosbeaks? I'll keep you posted!
