When I first arrived at the parking lot at WCC and checked the crabapple trees, it was nothing but American Robins taking full advantage of the fruit. More and more robins flew in from neighboring trees. There must have been at least 200. It was quite a sight.
I decided to be patient and double checked the other trees around the parking lot. Still nothing but Robins. A little later, I saw a few European Starlings mixed in.
Then, a much smaller bird which turned out to be some type of Sparrow species, probably a House Sparrow. Then, I saw a lone bird in one of the trees to the right of the clubhouse. It was singing a song I had never heard before! BINGO. A female Pine Grosbeak. A very hungry female Pine Grosbeak!
It was quite a popular tree, hosting multiple American Robins, European Starlings, a Pine Grosbeak and Cedar Waxwings all at the same time.
Note to self: WCC looks like it would be a beautiful place to watch the sun rise!
