A week ago, one of these birds showed up at my feeders, but he left. I wondered if I would get any more. Yesterday, three males and a female showed up. These Neotropical migrants don’t breed in Oklahoma; he’s just passing through.

Wonderful job on this image. Get the exposure, colors, and depth of field right on. Although we get both Black Headed and Evening Grosbeaks in the Pacific Northwest, this species doesn’t make it to Washington state. And I have yet to see any Grosbeaks the spring. It may be a little early.
