Black-headed Grosbeaks are extremely wary birds — quick to exit stage left the minute they see you and long before you can get your camera up and ready.
Today, for the first time ever, two visited the feeder on my deck. I knew if I moved they’d be gone, so I just watched them. Later, while I was in the kitchen with my camera at hand, one of them returned! Wow — happy first day of summer in the Western Hemisphere!
