Backyard Birding

The bird migration is on. With today's warmer weather, our feeder is receiving lots of guests today.

This morning there was a flock of at least 7 white-crowned sparrows.
Mrs. Cardinal stopped in next. My dirty window seems to have blurred things a bit.
Then came Mr. and Mrs. House Finch.
Mrs. Rose-breasted Grosbeak stopped in next but I didn't get a good photo of her. Could her 'husband' be far behind?

After lunch, Skip alerted me that Mr. Rose-breasted Grosbeak had indeed arrived.
We've never seen grosbeaks at our feeder before. And the only other time I've seen one was several years ago at Lynde Shores off Bayly.
That beak is really suited to cracking open nut shells.
