The poor guy might be blown back north by Hurricane Joaquin that’s headed your way. In any case, thanks for the reminder that the grosbeaks are coming back. I’ll start watching for them here in Tennessee, where they usually pass through around the middle of October.

To follow up: I just spotted my first Grosbeak migrator of the Autumn today, Oct 7th.
