I wanted to mention that Max and Melissa are incredibly gracious to the
birders camping out on their lawn for days at a time.
I would like to thank them.

> My name is Melissa and I am one of the residents at 1902 N 55th Street,
> where the Grosbeak has been feeding at our backyard feeder since the 21st.
> We did not see him at all yesterday, but I just saw him a few minutes ago.
> There is a Cooper's Hawk who visits our backyard regularly (spotted
> yesterday, in fact), and he may have temporarily scared the Grosbeak away.
> The Grosbeak was first seen by my husband at our feeder on the 21st, and
> has been seen every day except the 22nd and 28th. We don't have a lot of
> data to draw from, but he seems to be most consistently visiting after 3:30
> PM. However, some days (especially if it's sunny), he will feed for a while
> in the late morning.
> When you come by, keep an eye on the adjacent backyard, as I have seen him
> perched on their back fence. Once he sifted through the cracks on their
> patio roof. (No one lives in that house, so you will not be upsetting
> Feel free to come by soon to see him before he moves on (and before we
> have some major plumbing work done, which should be quite disruptive).
> Happy birding!
