Oregon Coast Backyard Birds

We don’t see the grosbeaks all summer but they are here this week.  The Blackheaded grosbeaks are the most common.  The Evening grosbeaks are the most colorful.

The hummers stick around as soon as they find a feeder.

The Tree Swallows are looking for a good place to nest.  This couple had a little chickadee chewing them out though.  So we don’t know if they raided the chickadee’s nest or if they were encroaching on each other’s territory.
