Subject: [VTBIRD] Pine Grosbeaks at Technology Park
Many, many American Robins and Pine Grosbeaks were feeding on the
ornamental crab apple trees at Technology Park this morning, brightening
up our cold and windy wait for the car to be inspected. Checklist and
photos here: https://ebird.org/checklist/S82160107
We'd never had as much time to watch Pine Grosbeaks that close; I'd
always thought they swallowed the small fruits whole, but they actually
take small repeated nibbles, covering their faces and breasts with bits
as they do.
