More Recent Arrivals

All three of our recent arrivals have been expected, although to our way of thinking the chipmunk was really late in showing up.  We had seen a female cowbird a couple of weeks ago but yesterday was the first that we had seen male Cowbirds.  The Cowbirds were here today, but no females were seen the last couple of days, only the males.

And saving the best for last, we had two male Rose-breasted Grosbeaks feeding at our feeders yesterday!

This is the feeder that they fed from the previous year also.  I was quite sure that they would arrive at this same feeder and they did!
