Bill spotted the female first and she was difficult to see behind willow limbs etc. Then we heard the distinctive song & figured a male was around too, and sure enough, he showed up too. We've had these in Birchim before but maybe only once or twice. The red eye was seen on both. We also saw a chat and heard three dif. Blue Grosbeak males singing. Three White-throated Swifts flew over chattering.
