Black-headed Grosbeak

Thursday, September 27, 2012 10:16 AM | Anonymous

I have not posted in a while and wanted to take this opportunity to let everyone know that Charles Mickel spotted and took a photo of a Black-Headed Grosbeak yesterday, 9/24, at his home in Whitewater Springs.  This species breeding range occurs in the western half of the United States and having one on the Refuge is considered accidental.

The bird was seen several times during the day feeding on sunflower seeds on his  platform feeder along with Cardinals, Titmouses and Carolina Chickadees, with plenty of Lesser Goldfinches nearby on thistle sacks.

Enjoy!!!!
