 Evening Grosbeak… I’ve never seen one in person, but doesn’t this one look like he’s asking you to dance?  And hot though he may be, we’ve caught him on a Snow Day, because it’s snowing in Corvallis today…

From what I read, he represents a dwindling species, possibly because… well, the usual suspects.  Most notably, the decline of spruce budworm… budworms are bad for timber… q.e.d.   Sigh.
