The Black-headed Grosbeak arrived in our garden before the end of April last year.  Today I saw them for the first time in 2011.  It illustrates once more than ancient wheeze you may have heard from your granny: Better late than never.  Welcome back, oh gross ones.

There were grosbeaks on the feeders, on the ground, chippping from the trees.  At least four them.  They always bring activity, noise and brilliant flashes of color when they return from their tropical vacation each spring.
