Thanks, Bogie. Your dad always makes sure that the GBBC is on both of our calendars--and--he makes the forms for us to fill out each day, fills out the "final", and submits it. Pretty good for a guy who didn't start birdwatching until he was nearly 50 (he did it in self-defense when I lived in Albuquerque because Elder Brother and I dragged him along when we went to Bosque del Apache, etc.) As to the pine grosbeak: please send a couple down this way, would you? We've had a pair of purple finches all winter (not every day, but frequently enough that we know they are in the area), and a pair of red-breasted nuthatches--that were conspicuous by their absence, last year. I heard the red-breasted NHs last year, but all we saw were the more numerous white-breasted.

Only if the pine grosbeaks make it this way will I be trying to coax them down to your area.

We've had red polls this year. They come in only sporatically; I think it has been 3-4 years since their last time down here.

It has been ages since I last saw a red poll. I recall seeing one as a teenager; but can't think of any, since.
