However later in the afternoon I realized that we had two male grosbeaks visiting when this one shown above showed up at the same feeder where the first had been, This second grosbeak had a full rose coloured breast. Wow! How great can it get!?
on a tripod focused on this feeder. I haven't seen any Grosbeaks yet today but hopefully soon one will appear. And perhaps by the end of the day I may have some closeups of these handsome birds! One or both of them may show up here to feed. And yes!!~! success!!! Can you see the male Grosbeak posing for the camera?( see photo below) I won't download the pictures yet but hopefully this bird has activated the camera. Earlier I had to chase away a grey squirrel which had chosen to feed there and I was worried it might have eaten the choice pieces of corn and sunflower seeds which appeal to a grosbeak's appetite. Oh Happy Day, a bird cam is such fun to play with! I finally downloaded my pictures of the birdcam rose-breasted grosbeak! I think they are quite nice and i am pleased that I was able to capture these closeups with my birdcam.
