The Blue Grosbeak

Male and Female Blue Grosbeaks
This summer I've started taking survey of the birds surrounding my property - not just the faithful backyard feeder birds. I've realized that I live in a perfect bird habitat. There are fields (some farmland, some left wild), wooded areas and water (a pond and a river within walking distance). I remember years ago when I first created my butterfly garden. I would get so excited when a new butterfly was attracted to my flowers and host plants. Now it's birds...  It's so fun to not only view a new bird, but to capture it in a photo.

This summer I can add a new member to my "blue" birds (Blue Jays, Bluebirds, Indigo Buntings)...

The Blue Grosbeak!
