Indeed, Ian; well done. I saw a couple evening grosbeaks in our yard this morning, the first I've seen of the species in several years, but I could not get a photo.

Thanks Al. They seem to show up here this time of year, and spend the winter at my feeders. I'm not sure who eats more, them or the Blue Jays.

Thank you Bret. For sure I thought your comment would be about your friend the Downy. He did ask about you ;)
