Black-Headed Grosbeak

Spotted in our neighbor's backyard yesterday evening.

Black-Headed Grosbeak

We used to have one at our previous house that would rap on the window in the back door. It would trill, rap, rap against the glass, and trill again. I'm not sure what it was looking for. A mate perhaps?

After awhile, it got annoying. This went on for days but eventually the bird moved on.

I think they rap against your house because it makes a big noise and impresses the ladies. Wonderful photo!

Beautiful bird and a great photo of it.

It's funny how annoying some birds can get, and how quickly.

I remember thinking a whippoorwill sounded so beautiful as the sun went down... then at 3am, I wanted to shoot the damn thing. ;-)
