This week a bird I've never seen before and happily he's now a regular visitor to my feeder!!
At first I didn't know what he was
but when I got a good look at that heavy beak I knew it was some kind of Grosbeak
I excitedly called my sister,
shot over a photo
to her and she helped me identify it as a gorgeous Black-Headed Grosbeak!
What a beauty!!
I also spotted this little one on the edge of my raised garden bed,
I've seen this one before but never gotten a good photo.
A lovely White Crowned Sparrow!!
And here's one shaking it's tail feathers,
at first I thought it was a youngster asking to be fed,
but maybe it's a male showing off to the ladies!
I'd love to know for sure???
He stood there for some time shaking the tail feathers and what looked like posing!
A really great bird week for me,
I actually have a few other pictures I got on our Mother's Day visit up north to Big Lake
but I'm going to save those for next week.
