A Day on Merganser Lake XVIII

Here’s a bonus shot for today because the weather certainly won’t lift your spirits. The male rose-breasted grosbeaks showed up May 1. A lone female showed up a few days later. Yesterday another female arrived on the scene. Not as colorful as the male, but still a looker.

(Repeat text for context:  I’m running out of COVID-19 lockdown themes so from now until things get back to some semblance of normalcy, I will simply post my best photo from the previous day. You could say it fits because of its uncertainty and challenge. I’ll call the series “A Day on Merganser Lake,” even though that’s not the real name of the lake I live near in southwestern Connecticut, it’s just a nod to my favorite duck family.)
