FOS Black-headed Grosbeak in Atascadero


Kevin Zimmer
 

I just photographed my FOS Black-headed Grosbeak (a male) in our back yard in north Atascadero minutes ago. We also had the first female Bullock’s Oriole of the spring here (males first arrived a couple of days ago, during a break in the storm). Rufous Hummingbirds are increasing in number at the feeders — at least 3 adult males and several female/imm-plumaged birds present today. We still have in excess of 40 Pine Siskins swarming our feeders — I would expect them to be leaving soon.
