1-2-3-4-5 ~~Wow!

Howdee all,

Last night while enjoying dinner in Homey. Jeff, Sicksta Dell and I saw the big beaked Female Rose-breasted Grosbeak.

I mentioned that we had not seen they young male who was here a few days earlier and that he must be on his way north.

We watched her and another female Rose-breasted.

The males each tried to sit at the feeder with the female..but she would not have it and chased them away each time.
