Blue Grosbeak




We have a new visitor. He is a Blue Grosbeak. I haven't seen one here before and he is quite pretty. He apparently just flew in from his winter in Mexico. He is supposed to be here in May so he is a bit early. I guess the warm weather convinced him to fly back to Texas. He likes to eat grasshoppers so he is definitely welcome here.

I found a website that gives great information about birds. I really like the "Sound" tab so that I can identify them by their calls.
