Scrappy Pine Siskins with my window in the background.

This Yellow Bellied Sapsucker landed right in front of me while I was looking out my window!

Very nice set Sandy. Handsome grosbeak in that first one, really like that shot. And interesting view of the siskins, neat pattern on the spread wings and tail.

Another beautiful set Sandy! I love the Grosbeak and the Titmouse they are 2 of my favorites too! It looks like it was quite the feeding frenzy at your feeder!

Great shot of the Grosbeak! I saw one yesterday on my bike ride, but didn't have my camera with me. Who knows if it would have hung around long enough for me to dig out the equipment and get a shot off as well composed as yours! Love the colors, thanks for posting. John

Very nice set Sandy, I had just one of those Grosbeaks pass thru, never did get a shot. Very nice set, love the little Titmouse, Very nicely detailed! :-)

Very nice series, thank you for sharing them. We had a Grosbeak bounce off our window a few ago and it sat stunned but few away. When you see them, like a Cardinal, you know what kind they are...

Nicely done Sandy. My wife saw a Rose Breasted Grosbeak in the yard the other day. I missed it! :)

Thank you all for the comments, and compliments! Sorry about the group reply, but I'm a bit preoccupied...8 baby chicks in the house! They may be domestic chicks, but they are still a lot of fun!

Thanks Peter. They never hang around very long. Guess they all head north to visit Jeff!
