Grosbeaks fight for the best perch around the feeder
With plenty of bird-feeders, a peaceful atmosphere, no hunters or bird-trappers around, and a pleasant weather all around, birds frolic and dance around at Mount Angel Retreat House, as is evident from these photos I took last week.

Among the birds were plenty of sparrows, some golden-crowned sparrows, chipping sparrows, grosbeaks, finches, as well as hummingbirds, who relished on the nectar as they buzzed around with their wings fluttering at incredible speed. 

Tomorrow I will share some great photos of  steller's blue jays and gray-breasted jays.
