Evening Grosbeak

Evening Grosbeaks have been arriving in the Willamette Valley and reported by a number of people, but we have not been able to find any yet.  In fact, we spent and hour and a half this morning birding at Wallace Marine Park, hoping to find them as well as a few other species we needed for this years Polk County list.  Then, just as we were finishing lunch I looked up and noticed this pair of Evening Grosbeaks, first at the feeder and then at the bird bath. Some times I wonder why I even bother to leave the house!




  1. Vunderbahr! (sp?) Once again, the mighty hunter (with steady hand and beady eye) gets awesome pictures. Good job, Jim!

  2. If there is an available sunflower seed, the Evening Grosbeak will find it. Lee
