BIRDS OF A FEATHER - We have enjoyed the flock of Evening Grosbeaks in our yard this winer. They are not common visitors to our area and their irruption this year is, according to our friend, naturalist Meade Cadot, tied directly to the current outbreak of Spruce (and fir) Budworm in Canada and northern Maine. Lack of food in their usual territory has Evening Grosbeaks in southern New Hampshire this year.

Still hankering to see a rose-breasted grosbeak down here in NC... they are FEW and FAR BETWEEN!!
All their little heads tilted makes for a pretty adorable photo!
