Refuge for the Rose Breasted Grosbeak

April 25, 2017

We had quite the treat today.  A Rose Breasted Grosbeak paid our feeder a visit after three days of substantial rain.  I mean no breaks in the rain for three days.  We received 2.53 inches today alone. It stopped around 10:00 a.m. this morning. It's feast or famine with the rain here this Spring.  The rain must have delayed the grosbeak on his migration path north or northwest.  I have never seen one.  It was an easy google look up:  grosbeak (for sure), black and white with red. Of course one of the bully boy Blue Jays made sure that he didn't stay long when I first spotted him this morning. Fortunately he returned this afternoon and I have better photos now.
