Dear Caryn and Tweeters,
 
I just checked my records, and I have found Evening Grosbeaks in the winter season (late November-early March) in Skagit County about six or seven times per winter, over the past twenty-plus years. They turn up regularly, but not always predictably.
 
Yours truly,

"Nun," sagte ich, "wenn ich ein Taugenichts bin, so ist's gut, so will ich in die Welt gehen, und mein Glueck machen." Und eigentlich war mir das recht lieb, denn es war mir kurz vorher selber eingefallen, auf Reisen zu gehen, da ich die Goldammer, welche im Herbst und Winter immer betruebt an unserm Fenster sang: "Bauer, miet' mich, Bauer, miet' mich!" nun in der schoenen Fruehlingszeit wieder ganz stolz und lustig vom Baume rufen hoerte: "Bauer, behalt' deinen Dienst!"

>wondering about their movement patterns. I see they are common but

>a window feeder (a small one at that) with at least 3-5 of them chowing

>down! What a sight that was to walk into the room and see a mini-flock of

>them on the window! I know they also enjoy the samaras on the vine maples -

>so I hope they come and have a feast.

>It's great being able to Tweet when having a cold - can still feel like I'm

>birding - vicariously at least!

>Caryn / Wedgwood (still just hearing them)
