adventures in domestic activism and activity
It's May Day and the Black-Headed Grosbeaks have just arrived!A flock came to the feeders as we ate supper.They'll stay until autumn and eat pounds and pounds of seed and amuse us while we drink our tea.They are one reason why we can't have a cat.
Dude, I just saw this bird in my yard at the bird bath. Weird, because I thought it was a tanager, but I know little of the birds.
Western Tanagers are, in my opinion, prettier: http://news.boisestate.edu/newsrelease/archive/2005/052005/Western%20Tanager.jpg . And they don't have black head or such a substantial beak.We get a few tanagers around campus, but none around our feeders. :(
Nah, I think it's really a grosbeak. I also think it's a bit lost in terms of where it needs to be....
