WBW - Female Grosbeak, Goldfinch and more

It's been quite a week at my feeder!

I recently shared my first sighting of the Black-Headed Grosbeak,
 then I finally started seeing the female!!
Isn't she a beauty!


Yesterday I saw flashes of bright yellow fly past the window,
 so I rushed to the camera to see this stunning Goldfinch pair sharing a meal at the feeder!
And if that wasn't enough...

I snapped a few pictures of this little round one,
it wasn't until I started editing that I saw the yellow on the top of the head,
I believe this is a Yellow Crowned Sparrow!!!

I couldn't be more excited to see 3 new birds at my feeders in one week!!
I can't wait to see what this week brings!



  1. Your bird photos are such a treat. I adore our feathered friends :)

  2. Three new birds in a week ... how lucky is that? My spring starts out with a mob of bully birds at my feeders, so the beautiful little song birds don't show up until they are gone. I can't wait! (though, I secretly love my bully birds too):)

  3. Nice images of these beautiful birds!!!


  4. Better look out: watching bird feeders is VERY addictive! Wonderful photos, Kristi! Can't wait to see what shows up next :)

  5. A great week of backyard birding wonderfully photographed.
    Thanks for sharing!

  6. All beautiful!! Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

  7. All beautiful shots! The goldfinch is truly a gorgeous creature....it is so unfair that the males get all the gorgeous coloring...just like the cardinals!

  8. Three new birds at your feeder is really great. I especially like the Goldfinches.

  9. Lovely to see some reminders of the pacific Northwest (we're originally from Oregon..and will be back for a visit this summer -- I'm excited!

  10. Beautiful!I love the yellow crowned sparrow. I don't think I have seen one of those. I will have to try and take photos of birds too, what a great idea!

  11. Great birds and I love the photos. Very nice to have three new visitors to your feeder.

  12. I too love watching the birds in the backyard and it is amazing when you get to see the pics, all the details that the eyes can miss! That sparrow is so cool, so plump and those eyes! Great shots!

  13. Beautiful! I love your finches. I've just started getting into bird watching. It's a whole new world for me! And fascinating!
