Grosbeak

The black headed grosbeak is by no means rare but it is a welcome resident of our front yard feeder.

Its lovely song has been likened to that a drunk robin.

The bird is common throughout the entire west. It is in the cardinal family.

I go to New Mexico soon. There I will probably see evening grosbeaks, that are actually in the finch family.

This is a picture of a female evening grosbeak I took in Santa Fe last year.
