The resident Blue grosbeak near the interpretive center at Blue Mounds
SP is back on territory. He made appearances just south of the center,
both yesterday afternoon and this morning, right along the black-top
path that leads from the parking lot to the center. On the first
occasion he perched at the top of a bush next to the path. This
morning he perched on a dead (oak, I think) tree just below the path.
On neither occasion did he sing, but today he was making his "chip"
call. Despite the cloudy conditions, his blue color was brilliant, and
the rusty browns of his wings was apparent. Also evident was the dark
and light contrast in his beak parts. While this may be a relatively
common bird for Minnesotans who spend time to the SW, this was a lifer
for us. thanks to all who have shared sightings from various places.
