To see two kinds of Grosbeaks side by side, one has to come to Pemberton. The picture shows one Black headed Grosbeak, male, three Evening Grosbeaks, one male two females and a male Purple Finch. So much colour !

Tschopp admits to having a soft spot for the black headed Grosbeak. Black-headed Grosbeaks. They have been back in the valley for a little over a week now.

This fellow was sitting in the blossoms and I just couldn’t help it to take another picture.

Brown headed Cowbirds don’t need a cow, a horse will do.
