Mellow Migrant

Bob worked day shift last week and after work, we got to spend some daylight time together on the couch. While watching the birds at the feeder on this chilly spring day, we delighted in seeing this colorful visitor. "The rose-breasted grosbeak was traveling north. When a spring storm struck, it spent a night nearby and fueled at our feeder. It's song resembles a Robin's, but is mellower, "as if a Robin had taken voice lessons". We're glad he was here, if only a moment. April 2012
The digital frame "notes" is from the Cottage Arts Scrap Edges 3 collection. I embossed the painted chippie border to complement the bird's feathers.
This is my 495th post. At post 500, I will select a winner for a nice giveaway. Any comments left until then is a chance to win! I appreciate your visits!
