Camera Critter #197

I always like to see new birds in my yard…or my neighbor’s yard.  Last winter was a good year for new birds.  We had numerous Varied Thrushes and at one point, you could see seven different birds in varied places around the house.

One day while attempting to get images of the thrushes, I noticed a non-thrush in the tree next door.  Looking through my camera, I saw a new yard bird…an Evening Grosbeak.

Beautiful bird, great sighting!

It seems that all the varieties of Grosbeaks have such beautiful vibrant colors! And, we both know, how great it is to see a new species (and share in it with your best friend).

Love those grosbeaks! We used to live in Spfld and saw them in our yard sometimes and often when we camped out closer to your neck of the woods.
