More Mostly Birds

Rose Breasted Grosbreak. It migrates in the winter to South America, Mexico, etc..and returns in April or May.  This is the first one we've ever seen here.  The males arrive first and then usually won't come to the feeders when the females (mostly brown) arrive a couple of weeks later.
The Gosbeak, finch and cardinal (female), the Grosbeak and cardinal,  the Grosbeak and hummingbird, doves

the Red Breasted Grosbeak, chickadee, and dove (getting out of it's 'bath'.

Finches (Male) Towhee, female cardinal, titmouse (male)

Titmouse, squirrel-digging up food and eating it.

Yellow finch and finch (female) and with a cardinal

Same as above except the last picture is of a different yellow finch-younger and less vibrant.

Finch (male and female) Hummingbirds--the last is of the female.

I am a bird watcher, too, and these are amazing photos. We don't have the grosbeak but we do have the rest. I just saw a hummingbird at the feeder this past week. They seem to be early.
