This guy and his lady friend have been showing up to our bird feeder the past few days. Although not quite as brilliantly yellow as the gold finches that normally visit, this grosbeak is stunning due to his yellow plumage, stunning blue-green beak, and his large (for a member of the finch family) size. He works hard at eating seeds and keeping the feeder free of smaller birds—house finches, purple finches, chickadees, and others—in order that he and his lady can enjoy their feast alone.
