I went out this morning and was able to find the blue grosbeaks. There
were some other birders there and I'm happy to report that everyone was
able to enjoy them while also not disturbing them with our presence. I
observed some favored perching spots and after the others left I
repositioned myself for some photos and my patience was rewarded!

Thanks for sharing the sighting and also for reminding people to respect
the birds.
