Newbies on the Block

We can now add house wrens and grosbeaks to the list of birds frequenting the feeders.  The house wrens are so tiny with their teeny tails sticking up in the air.  Mrs. Grosbeak was able to put the run on the finches only temporarily. They are not ones to give up on using the feeders and have practised fighting among themselves, so her attempts were somewhat futile. She gave up after awhile and grudgingly allowed them to share the seeds and nuts that fell onto the tabletop under the feeders.  We were trying to watch a movie while all this was going on, but the birds were far more interesting to see.
