There is an ongoing parade of colors in the yard. Sometimes it is butterflies, often it is flowers, but recently it has been in the form of avian life.
|Baby Grosbeak (male)|
The Rose-breasted Grosbeaks have nested and are currently raising young in our yard. This peachy-colored male has been visiting the feeder on a regular basis. Early on his father brought him in and carried sunflower seeds to him. Now he comes all on his own.
|The awkward age. Who knew grosbeaks went thought a spotted-breast phase?|
|Jr. Grosbeak gleans from the squirrel baffle.|

This window set up also allows me to take some close-up shots without using much of my camera's zoom copasity. Therefore, the resolution and quality is the shot is much better than one gets in the wild.
Hopefully, you have enjoyed meeting this wonderful grosbeak family as much as I have enjoyed filming them. It has been a profound experience for me!
