When I see the reports on this list of arrivals, I have learned what that means for when I can expect arrivals in my backyard on Beam Hill. Right on schedule for arrival here, Redwing Scout showed up on Wednesday; the gang of guys showed up at the feeders this morning. At first I saw a half dozen or so at the tray feeder. I then looked at the willow tree to find dozens more. Back to the feeder tray - there was an one among the flock with unusual markings. He looked much like the others, complete with epaulets of yellow but he also had a yellowish/orange throat. The head and rest of the body was all black. He certainly stood out from the crowd. Any thoughts?
