Click on the image and then click on it again for a closer look. Of course there were more grosbeaks in the trees and at other feeding stations in the yard. Our yard has been teaming with grosbeaks since it snowed. There's up to 50 Evening Grosbeaks at a time and up to 10 Pine Grosbeaks. They hang around all day and pack down sunflower seeds like there's no tomorrow.
I did more than my fair share of staring out the window today. It's that kind of day. While I was staring, three Common Redpolls made a brief appearance. A dozen Bohemian Waxwings stopped by. And the regulars: Black-billed Magpies, Downy and Hairy Woodpeckers, Black-capped Chickadees, Gray Jays. And ravens. Can't forget the ravens.
I have no idea what this one was digging for.
Tis the season! Project FeederWatch starts on November 13.
