Grosbeak update

Today we were visited by a black-headed grosbeak. Here he is feeding with one of our finch regulars. If we can finally figure out which squirrel deterrents will work with our pole, I hope to see a lot more bird visitors. The squirrels keep a lot of them away. The reason I'm so gaga about the birdies is because we haven't had this feeder up a whole year yet, so every new season brings new surprises. I'm sure I'll be less bird-crazy in time, but for now it's fun to spot new arrivals, and a lovely way to take a break from my musician interview transcriptions (Don't worry, Marty, I'm not billing you for my blog posting time!).
