Yard birds

For the second time this spring, we had a lovely male rose-breasted grosbeak at the feeder last night. This bird was one of my nemeses last year, as it never posed anywhere pretty enough for pictures - always just flew onto a feeder and then flew away without perching in, say, the lilac tree or anything else photogenic. Hopefully he'll be a little more cooperative this year.

We had a flock of 50 - 60 Blue Jays fly through the yard last night, too. I had no clue they flocked in those kinds of numbers. It was pretty cool to see.

The Baltimore Oriole was back on the feeder this morning. :)
