This is so cute! I found it on Pinterest and had to stop by and let you know.

Lenore, Evening Grosbeaks, because of poor food supplies in Canada, are irrupting, or moving, into many northern US locations. They are on the move right now but could be seen throughout the winter in upstate NY. Keep an eye out for them! Thanks for stopping in!

I live in Orchard Park NY (WNY)and for the first time, sighted 11 female evening grosbeaks on Oct. 30, 2012! Three were on my feeder,eating sunflower seeds, while the rest of them were perched in a tree, nearby. I ran to get my camera, and the grosbeaks on my feeder flew off. I counted 11 up in the same tree. I waited 5 minutes to take a picture, and suddenly one grosbeak flew off, with the rest of the flock following. I have not seen them since. Do they migrate this late in the fall? This was an amazing experience, and hopefully, they will return here!

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
