Refuge for the Rose Breasted Grosbeak
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.
