Pine Grosbeaks have been feeding on mountain-ash berries in my yard for the last few weeks, not eating the pulp but the seeds. Quite interesting to watch. This afternoon (Sept. 19) when we had the rain they were at the top of the tree fluttering their wings and having a good bath.  In the tree at the same time were robins, chickadees, goldfinches and a hummingbird.
