Grosbeak Greeting

This lively and dramatically colored pair of evening grosbeaks swooped in to the Wachusett Meadow Audubon in Princeton, MA recently. They enjoyed black sunflower seeds from the feeder and on the ground. The female’s tall feathers blended in beautifully with the seeds. The red squirrel seemed to be happy to share the bounty!

    1. They come through here very occasionally. I was really pleased to see them for my first time ever! My goodness, where would we be without natural gifts such as those birds!

      1. Congratulations on adding a life bird! I can’t imagine a world without birds. It would be a much, much sadder place.
