Shelley, I think the grosback is friendly, we have a few come to our feed in the window daily. They even perch on the roof above while I fill the feeder. lol, it is cute. I also enjoyed your quote...very true.

They look like the sweetest birds, don't they? I love their little sincere faces.
That is a wonderful shot of her, thanks so much for sharing it!

Beautiful shot - and I agree 100 per cent with the quote too.

Sue said...

Certainly not as flashy as the males, but you have perfectly captured how wonderful they are in their own right. Gorgeous!

Judy said...

Great shot and I love the quote.

Beautiful. She has a lovely expression. We have rose-breasted grosbeaks at our feeders right now and I just love them.

Heather said...

What a beautiful bird, and beautiful shot Shelley! I think our grosbeaks are done "passing through" - haven't seen any for a few weeks.

Willard said...

That is a super capture. I assume you were using the new Sigma as that is really up close and personal!

I really like the owl photo too. The facial expression is awesome.
