After many years of not seeing any Evening Grosbeaks at my feeders, I saw 4 of them yesterday. One of the males, however, has an abnormal head marking of yellow. Rather than the thick eyebrow of yellow which is typical, this one has added yellow feathers on the top of its head. It reminds me of an old-style, leather football helmet – ala the Univ. of Michigan’s modern representation.
