We have had a female plumaged Crimson-collared Grosbeak on and off at Frontera since Dec. 29th! It was seen by two groups already this morning (Saturday). I am including Dan Jones’ bird list from yesterday so that you can see all the other species that are here as well. It is not the nicest of weather, but if you bundle up in your waterproof jacket, it is a good day to walk in the Thicket.  And the Visitors’ Center is nice and cozy with coffee and goodies awaiting.
