WILDLIFE WATCHING — Spokane Valley birders Marlene and Bob Cashen carefully watched a new bird on their block over the weekend to make this observation.
Saturday, February 16th, we had six female Pine Grosbeaks in our yard in Veradale — definitely a new yard bird for us. They were not actually eating berries but rather were extracting and eating the seeds from within the berries and discarding the pulp. In the picture you can see how the berries have been opened up and the seeds removed.
