About Today’s Photo:
We put our bird feeders back up the other day and the usual suspects are coming back. It took the chickadees about 10 minutes to discover the feeders. A pair of evening grosbeaks showed up yesterday. We used to get great flock of grosbeaks in the winter maybe 15 years ago. In recent years, however, they’ve been quite scarce. I’m not sure why that is, but is was nice to see the pair yesterday. I wonder if they’ll stick around.
