Rose-breasted Grosbeaks!

Oh, man. I'm sure plenty of people with sharper eyes than mine will notice that I took these through a window with a point-and-shoot camera, but I'm pretty darned pleased with them. Because these are MY birds--at my feeder on my balcony of my apartment in Ithaca. My whole spirit has been soaring today. The birds are back in droves and I feel a wave of happiness that is overpowering.

I had one Rose-breasted Grosbeak photo on my "gallery" before these. If you check it out, you're guaranteed to laugh--it may be the worst Rose-breasted Grosbeak photo ever taken.
