It's rare that I post about my yard birds, but since the weather has been gloomy, the only quality photos to be gotten are close ups, so I set up just inside my sliding glass door and waited for my feeder friends to show up.
A favorite of mine, the Rose-breasted Grosbeak is always welcome in my yard.

I have 5 Indigo Buntings in my yard. I think that they are all related and this one is most likely a first-year male, showing variable amounts of brown, especially in the wingbars.
Here's a look at another sibling.
And this closeup was the closest encounter of the day, as the House Finch fed just 6 feet away.
