Subject: [MBBIRDS] Black-headed Grosbeak on the feeder
Hi birders,

I happened to glance at our feeders and immediately recognized a

I took a few, ah, let's be charitable and call them "documentary" images:

I wonder if it was the same bird that visited our yard on Dec. 17th, the
day after the SC CBC.

Images from 12/17/2017:

Gotta say, this is the earliest Black-headed Grosbeak we've ever had in
the yard. Given the similarities between the images, and the lack of
other Black-headed Grosbeak reports, my guess is that it is the same
wintering? bird.

Now nervously checking the feeders every few minutes...  ;)
