Sweet Tweet Tuesday, um Sweet Shot Tuesday

Over the last couple of weeks, we have been having some unusual guests. While I had seen a Rose-Breasted Grosbeak once or twice before, we have had about 25 at a time! On more than one occasion, I counted a dozen males, not counting all the females. It has been quite remarkable.

But now they are gone. I knew they were probably a feeding flock passing through on the way to their breeding grounds up north, but I had hoped that a pair or two might stay. They were here for a couple of weeks of fun and about fifty pounds of sunflower seed. Unfortunately, they are jumpy birds and I never got the shot of them I was hoping for. But that's the way it goes with photographing wild birds.

Hop on over to Life With My 3 Boybarians
and see what other sweet shots are out there today.



  1. What an amazing bird!! I love birds... Great shot♥

  2. oh, congrats on getting to see them while they lasted! we had a female but i never saw a male this spring. and yes, only passing thru...

  3. Wow - very pretty! I'm hoping for some hummingbird pics soon. Getting some regulars and hoping they get a little comfortable with me and the camera. :)
