Evening Grosbeaks and More

Spotted a pileated woodpecker in Clear Creek Park last week and was able to get surprisingly close!

A few days ago, I saw what looked like an overgrown yellow finch flash out of the tree I spend much of my time observing. Later she returned with a friend and I was able to get pictures. I was fairly certain it was a type of grosbeak, their beak is pretty recognizable compared to most of the other birds who visit here. Yesterday the male showed up and stunned me with his severe colors. Today, I caught a male and female having brunch.

Also have decided grackles are the original angry bird and always look terrifying…
