Jan Hansen reported that "This is my first sighting of a black-headed grosbeak. They migrate in from Mexico and are usually high up in our forests, but here he is on my deck!"

This is the second grosbeak sighting in Shoreline - so watch for them while the weather remains cool.

The "large beaks" are pretty unmistakable, as are the distinctive markings.
