Last February a pair of Evening Grosbeaks showed up at my birdbath, and hung around until April.  Today, a pair showed up at my bird bath again.  I strongly suspect that these are the same birds who wintered here last winter.   Returning to the same local, or yard, to spend the winter is not uncommon among birds.  Perhaps one of them is a returning bird, and the other is a new partner.  I dunno.

    Hi Eric,
    Such a handsome bird, the Evening Grosbeak. I enjoyed looking through your sparrow photos as it reminds me to be alert to all the possibilities I might find as fall progresses. And, I agree that patience is a large part of sparrow success.
