Hello Tweets,

My extremely patient partner was in the middle of saying something yesterday afternoon when I suddenly jumped up, ran out of the room, grabbed my camera and started snapping—I’d just glimpsed my FOY Black-headed Grosbeak at our deck feeder. He came back several times over the course of the evening, and hopefully sometime soon he’ll bring his sweetheart.

A couple of days earlier, I’d also enjoyed observing a Song Sparrow not just eating dandelion seeds, but pouncing on the heads as if they were prey, then acting quite proud of him/herself stripping off the fuzz and consuming the seed. A pounce photo is here<https://www.flickr.com/photos/trileigh/47708471852/in/dateposted-public/> – not the best photo, but fun to see.

Good birding to you,
