This winter was an eruption year for Evening Grosbeaks. We had not seen any for more than 20 years at our bird feeders. These beautiful birds can brighten a gray winter’s day. One had flown into our window and I was able to help him recover and release him. During the days, flocks came to feed and disappear for the night. My patient stayed by himself in our cedar tree for the night. He came at 7 am for food each morning, for 2 weeks. I could identify him by the out of place feathers on his head from his colliding with the window. Now I cannot recognize him any longer. His feathers grew back, and he became part of the flock. This sculpture is a tribute to his loyalty.
