We have been enjoying feeding the birds and watching their antics. The cats probably enjoy watching the birds more than we do.
This week the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks returned! We love the grosbeaks for their ugly beaks and the males' beautiful markings. The females look like little hawks. Last year the Grosbeaks stayed all winter and we had at least two pairs all summer. They must have known this past winter would be a hard one and decided to spend it somewhere warmer.
