The Black-headed Grosbeaks have arrived

The Black Headed-Grosbeaks have arrived and they have been here for a couple of weeks.  There appear to be about a half dozen pairs coming and going to the bird feeders.  They really like this feeder as it has a mix of premium finch seeds and safflower seeds.

Here is an interesting fact, these are one of the few birds that can safely eat the poisonous monarch butterfly.

Below is a short video of a male Black-headed Grosbeak flying to the feeder and hanging on for the ride!
