Evening Grosbeak

I noticed them as I was on my way out the door–I came within a hair of completely missing them

they hardly look real, they’re so lovely
trying to capture close-up shots

This is the first sighting of a pair of Evening Grosbeaks at our feeder in all the years we’ve lived here. The Rose breasted Grosbeak is a common visitor but these do not even look related.  They must be passing through the Berkshires on their way south.  What beauties!

my first startled view after grabbing the camera
