Rose-breasted grosbeaks, indigo buntings, and goldfinches, oh my!

Ah, spring! The feeder has been delightfully busy in recent days. In addition to the usual chickadees, titmice, bluejays, and sparrows, we've seen Rose-breasted grosbeaks (male and female), cardinals, goldfinches (winter coats molting to reveal their ornamental yellows and blacks), and the spectacular indigo bunting!
