Rose-breasted grosbeak

What a delight this afternoon! The sun is out after a solid week of rain. I came home and sat/lay on the deck and watched the birds after working most of the day. Saw all the usual suspects- house finches, goldfinches, robins, doves, blue jays, squirrels. But in the mix were also a hermit thrush, a rose-breasted grosbeak, and an indigo bunting.

A hemlock bush has sprung up, volunteer, in the back yard, and grows rapidly, probably 6-8 inches in the last week. I told Dennis we’d better cut it down before it eats us.

Am looking forward to cycling to work again next week, seeing what’s going on in the park.
