I was inside doing some household chores and decided to take a break and go outside for some air. I noticed a pair of birds in the crabapple tree and at a brief glance thought cardinals. After focusing on the birds realized no they are not cardinals and got a little closer and saw they were pine grosbeaks. A bucket list sighting right in my yard. I backed up slowly until I reached the deck and then raced inside to get the camera. I took several pictures of them and they could of cared less. They stayed in the tree for over an hour and then moved on.. I haven’t seen any since. It was really cool having that unusual visitor enjoy some lunch in my yard.
