Today, as we 'lunched', my DH suddenly sucked in his breath and asked very quietly and rapidly what bird that was outside our dining room window picking at the branches of a tree. I had time to run for the birdbook and camera. This pair of Pine Grosbeaks is having a feast of berries or seeds. Below is the male. This is the female of the pair. As I look out now into the tree there are several more joining the first two. We've never seen them here before, so the feasting of our eyes is truly a lunch upon a time for us!
The other morning, as the sun rose I was treated to this glorious sunrise and sparkling on the dew of the branches. We are truly blessed to live in God's country!
