BIRDS ON THE FEEDER; BIRDS ON THE WIRE

Grosbeak in the garden. I think this is an adult female Black-headed Grosbeak, based on that bicolored beak. She shares nicely with the little kids on the playground:

BIRDS ON A WIRE
I saw a beggar leaning on his wooden crutch
He said to me, “you must not ask for so much”
And a pretty woman leaning in her darkened door
She cried to me, “hey, why not ask for more?”
Oh, like a bird on the wire
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free. –Leonard Cohen

Actually a pelican, even BBC still writes “Shoebill stork.” While we were in Uganda, we saw some real storks:
