I checked the bird feeders about an hour ago. The finch-feeders remained dry, hanging as they do under the fig tree with its large leaves, but my other two feeders contained a sodden mess of uneaten seeds. I had to empty both, and pressure-wash one of them, the large safflower seed feeder, to remove the yuck. It's now turned upside down on my patio to dry out.

A Rose-breasted Grosbeak, who has been visiting for the past few days, favors the safflower feeder. I just peeked out the office window and discovered that he (for it is a male) has discovered the fresh supply of safflower seeds, and has made himself at home on the substitute feeder, which has a much more narrow perch. Gladdens my heart, it does. Unfortunately, Grosbeaks are transient birds, so it won't be long until he is on his way. I've not spied a single Indigo Bunting today; they may have left before the storms.
The sun is shining and there is no foul weather in the forecast, so I'm looking forward to a good week.
