Either an immature male or female 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.

Male pine grosbeak puffing himself out to stay warm. I’ve been having trouble photographing the males – they don’t hang out close to the window when they’re not on the feeder, and they are quick to fly away when I go outside.
