Felix & Oscar

The rose-breasted grosbeak on the left is Felix and the one on the right is Oscar. This is how I imagined their conversation:

Felix: "Oscar, what's going on here? Your hair is a mess and the bird feeder is a mess!"

Oscar: "So what are you trying to say?" Snicker, snicker.

You got it! So funny...must be cool to have them as summer residents - they just pass through here.

KJ - think Oscar was rubbing his head thru all the bird seeds!

Bird Girl - :-)

Bobbie - Glad you think they're cute too!

Birdlady - I love having them. When we're up at our log cabin for the weekend, I see them throughout the day.

Great picture. I can tell that you don't have a lot of squirrels. At my place with all those peanuts, the feeder would be empty in about 10 minutes.

Very funny. It's reassuring to know that even something as beautiful as a grosbeak can have a bad hair day. Thanks for the laugh.

hahahaha, I love when birds talk!!!

I have two, that I use to make talk out in the yard...

Rosy and ...oh geez I forgot his name...I'll have to do a search..

Richard - I'm actually surprised. These were taken up at our log cabin where we have grey, red and black squirrels!

NC - that was the first "mussed" up grosbeak I've seen!

Sandy - isn't it great to project human personalities on our bird friends - ha,ha!

I love it!! Too cute. I only have one pair of Rose Breasted Grosbeaks and I only see them about once a day. I wish they would come around more often.
