They must breed nearby as the youngsters start appearing at her feeders every summer. We are near Grand Ronde Agency, SW Yamhill County, Coast Range foothills.
We also have raucous juvenile Ravens begging for food down by Agency Creek now.
This reminds me that when we did a BBS on July 24 in the northern coast range, beginning at Trask Summit (Tillamook County) and ending on Mt Hebo (Yamhill County), there were calling EVENING GROSBEAKS everywhere, practically at every stop! We saw a dad and youngster fly off the road on the backside of Mt Hebo.

Speaking of dispersing birds, three Evening Grosbeaks were at Fishback Hill west of Monmouth in Polk yesterday evening. I've never seen them here after April, and they presumably breed only upslope.
