Finally an Evening Grosbeak

Evening Grosbeak

Periodically the cone trees of the Canadian Boreal Forests don’t produce the cones that they normally do and the Pine Siskins, Redpolls and Grosbeaks descend into the United States . . . much to the delight of birders and bird feeders.  Three winters ago the dominate bird on our feeders was the Pine Siskin . . . the last two years, we didn’t see a single one.

This year Evening Grosbeaks are being seen on feeders all over Maine, but despite my best effort . . . we haven’t seen a single one.

Then this afternoon on the way to Thanksgiving Dinner I saw a forsythia bush filled with the beautiful yellow and black birds.  Species #305 for the year.
