It is a morning routine to feed the wild birds that eat at our feeder. When this migratory bird is an adult his head will turn black and he will have a deeper rose- red color on his breast. He will be leaving for South America soon. If he returns here next spring he will look like an entirely different bird.

The young male grosbeak
If he could speak....
Should he be asked,
What's his morning routine?
He'd say. "I like seeds for breakfast
Without coffee and caffeine."
