The grosbeaks have arrived

The grosbeaks have arrived.

This one likes the suet.

In flight

hanging upside down from the suet cage

Notice the Carolina chickadee in flight in the lower right. Look at how wide his wingspan is.

The female is on the left; the male is on the right.

A welcome harbinger of spring

I saw a female grosbeak on our suet feeders. I don't usually have the suet out this late, so it's been interesting to see the birds that come to it in this season.
