Evening Grosbeak... new bird at the farm

About a week ago I spotted a newcomer among the birds returning for the nesting season: a pair of Evening Grosbeaks. And in less than a week we've gone from hosting a single pair, to a flock too numerous to count.

More than a dozen Grosbeaks clamored around the feeders in the orchard this afternoon, joined by house finches (who are moving into the nesting box on a nearby telephone pole), gold-crowned sparrows (who have claimed the barn nesting boxes), and a red-winged blackbird that flew up from the pond.
