Evening Grosbeak (Coccothraustes vespertinus)
I call these birds 'the clowns,' they arrive in bunches and look and act silly at my feeders.
They do come in bunches. and they do act weird. Odd thing is, none came last winter. And last week, I saw one trying to get in my cage feeder. I had taken the feeders down because of the Grackles, and had use the cage for the smaller birds.
