Birds in the Backyard

Birds in the Backyard
My husband spends a lot of time (and money) feeding the birds in the backyard.
  It pays off with interesting sightings.

Here is a Robin sitting patiently on her nest.  While she was away we "peaked" in and saw three eggs.

 This is a pair of rose breasted grosbeaks.  They are such a pretty bird and they do seem
to like the choice of food that has been provided
And finally a large group of gold finches at their feeding station.  There is always a crowd on this feeder.
