The single Mountain Chickadee in our Ballard backyard has been joined by two additional MOCH. Sunday afternoon and Monday afternoon this trio was out shone by a Orange Bishop. It appeared to be a young molting male. We are assuming? that it is an escaped species. Have other folks had Bishops in their yards. There has been at least one here at Discovery in the last few years.
