But What KIND of Bird is It?

We've seen this bird and some of his friends at our feeder for a few weeks but we couldn't figure out what kind of bird it was. Slightly larger than a sparrow with Oriole or Meadowlark coloring, but a thicker beak. We finally snapped a picture of him and went page-by-page through our bird book until we found out what he is - a Black-headed Grosbeak. He eats heartily but he's pretty and brings his friends so we'll keep setting the table for him!

I was going to say a Grosbeak! We used to get them at our old house. Right about this time of year too. Hope all is well in your world, making my rounds to say hello :)

Angela, Haven't had any of these around for a while. I would love to see what is singing outside my back door every morning, though. They sound beautiful, but start in way before I want to get up. :D Missing your all so much!!!
