The morning started out overcast with a few showers but late this afternoon, the sky began to clear a bit. First thing this morning I started watching through the kitchen window. I couldn't believe it. I counted 9 Red-breasted Grosbeaks.....6 males and 3 females.
This afternoon when the skies cleared, I heard the Grosbeaks fussing as a bird flew near their feeder. It was a young male Summer Tanager. With still yellow primaries, my guess he is only about a year old.
A pair usually nests behind the house every year so I am guessing he is one of the offspring from last year.
