Hi Shelley,
I would be really curious to get the count of the number of birds you got at your feeders. This is a nice shot again. Wonderful bird and really sharp picture.

Oh wow, so pretty!
I have only seen one so far this year, I sure hope he comes back!

And what a lovely eye it is!

I'm surprised you were able to get such a great picture of a Grosbeak. They always seem very elusive to me.

Boy, when you see a great close-up shot like this you can see how they got their name - that beak is really gros!

Their bill looks out of portion to the rest of them. Another great capture.

Great capture of a wonderful bird-he really is something. I have never had the pleasure of seeing one in Missouri so I will enjoy your guy! I don't know why but their little feet just crack me up-I always have to check out the bird feet!
