The day before yesterday, saw 3 Black-headed grosbeaks: checked a female Black-headed several times, then I heard the calls, “there could be more,” I said to myself. Then I got a good look at 2 young males :D before they were gone.
This year saw Black-headed grosbeak at Lost Lagoon, Stanley Park in May, in June, in August and heard one singing in July. :lol:
