Rose-breasted grosbeak. Four pairs coming to the feeder today, so I'll be scattering images of them on various threads.

Well, as the song says, "Just too marvelous for words." Thanks so much. I am getting to fall in love with my Olympus E-PL1 and soon will be ordering a VF-3 viewfinder for it.

Note the big male, hihs left leg seems out of joint, or injured, and he walked with a limp
Maybe he needs a hip replacement.

Aside from the reddish gunk around the edges of the water I see a truck driver has cast off a pee filled water bottle too.

Still, you live in an amazing part of the world Norm. Many opportunities to see and photograph such wonderful flora and fauna.

I suggested in my best quiet voice that the moose move to a more suitable location devoid of garbage but he ignored me. Which given his size and my size was probably a good thing. When you're cranking your 60-250 back to under 200 for an animal this size, you might be too close.

Blue visiting the feeder. A species that's easier to convince it should move than a moose, in fact, for all they have a reputation for being bossy, they are rather skittery and quick to flee at the slightest disturbance.

Canada goose family. I didn't have a telephoto zoom with me during out walk with Tralee, so this is a very deep crop from the normal range zoom. The birds were really too far away for this lens.
