Grosbeak Alert From My Neck Of The Woods

Last month I was drawn to a new sound. Turned out to be a Black-and-yellow Grosbeak. I have seen them here in winter, in clusters on a bare tree. Their bright foilage and distinct bills made them hard to miss. Frankly, I think the word ‘gros’ is bit unflattering.

Here is my recording of the solitary (June) visitor who seems quite content with perching and pecking. Watch:http://youtu.be/A0D_BTcW6TQ
