For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he
might be Lord both of the dead and the living....Romans 14:9
-----------------------------------------------------------------

A male breasted rose Grosbeak

Rested taking a break...

As he got a grip

On the situation...

Waiting to be revived,

O'er this end

Of the migration;

While his female friend

Had a bite to eat

After their long trip.

How well they survived

Their travels earthly,

Paving life's journey...

Poetry by me, AJP

The male and female rose breasted Grosbeaks breed in cool-temperate North America, migrating to tropical America in winter. They are back now eating seeds from our feeder.

I caught the male patiently waiting on the branch for his mate to get done eating:)

    He is so beautiful! Great capture, Andrea! For the first time, this year we saw a female, but I didn't get to photograph her. She ate at our feeders for a couple of days. She must have been migrating North.
