Pine Grosbeak

This is the first year we’ve had pine grosbeaks regularly at the feeder, sometimes up to 6 at a time. It’s been at least 8 days in a row now, so I’m hopeful they’ll be hanging around for the winter. They’re a nice break from the redpolls and chickadees. We don’t get a lot of birds that stick out the winter here so it’s nice to be seeing some variety.
