My Grosbeak Boy

I'm done stitching "Old Man Winter" and will post the finish on Monday. 
So now I'm thinking...maybe another snowman?

Whether or you are a knitter or not, you have to take a look at the photos and video of "Visit Scotland's" newest campaign.  Too cute!

I know I've posted lots of pictures of my Evening Grosbeaks lately.
It's just so unusual to have them around this time of year.

Rather than Oscar and Felix, I've decided my two guys are Father and Son.
This is Son.

He is shorter and chunkier than his father. 

He still has his baby-fat and downy baby look to him. 

He isn't the brightest bird on the planet either.

He lets me get very close to him.

He just stares at me - doesn't fly away in alarm.

He is a very pretty boy though.

There's something about the yellow eyebrow stripe that makes an Evening Grosbeak look intelligent and inquisitive.

You can see from the bits on his beak that he's had a delicious meal of sunflower seeds and is now topping it off with a drink of water.
Silly boy!

Thanks for the link Beth, it made me smile to see the ponies. The lady who provided the knitwear is a lovely lady to shop with. I've bought several items for my mum from her website and she is a delight to shop with.
