A couple of shots of stout billed birds from today in Wichita Falls. Horrible shots but y'all can handle it..

First two shot shows big bill with rounded tail.

This one seems to have a red head. Could be a male house finch but the red seems too distinct on head ... maybe just the image.

I'm thinking female Blue Grosbeak on the first bird. Second is indeed a male House Finch.

Life List: 687

Latest birds:  Buff-breasted Sandpiper, Piping Plover, Sooty Grouse

Seconding blue grosbeak, could also be a non-breeding male.

I set my web server back up.  I don't know why you would want to, but feel free to visit my site: http://weitzel.duckdns.org

With that huge bill I was thinking a Blue GB was a possibility. Thanks
