Every spring, I keep a lookout for one of the most beautiful birds you will ever see. They are Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks and they migrate through our area on their way north to their summer homes. You will only see them for about a week in the spring and sometimes in the fall when they head back south. This year, we saw our first ones on Saturday, April 30.
On Sunday morning, May 1, I was able to get a picture out my window of the Grosbeak on our feeder in our back yard on Sandpoint Road. We also saw our first Indigo Buntings on the same Saturday, April 30, and saw more on Sunday. The buntings are a beautiful bright blue in the sun. Generally, you only see them in the spring too.
