New Bird

 I have three bird feeders in the backyard.
I love feeding the birds and watching them splash around in the bird bath.

Today this was a NEW bird to the feeder.
Black-headed Grosbeak
There is a pair, male and female 
Nice to see new colors, new habits.

Thistle
Black Oil Sunflower Seeds
Wild Birdseed Variety

This photo was taken through the glass sliding door double pane window.
Hopefully I can get it outside on the deck once they are use to seeing me around.

Via the blogosphere I'm slow catching up on my garden birds in the USA. This is one I've not seen before.

I love when the Grosbeaks visit our feeders. They stay only a short while, then they're on their way further north, or south in the fall.
Thanks for sharing such a wonderful pic and
have a happy weekend!

Great capture! I love the colors. we don't have those here in MN. However, we do have the red brested grosbeak and I just love them.

i'm so jealous when i see folks who get grosbeaks and other interesting birds we don't get to see much here (unless we're lucky to see them migrate thru!)

Thank you everyone, hopefully I will the grosbeaks back when I am outside, so I can get closer shots. Will be visting all of your blogs very soon today.

Great shot Jane. We have them here although I have not seen a female this year. Last year a female crashed into our window......We have seen the male this year though. We hope he finds a new mate.
