Our one and only blue jay--almost too big for the nets, blue jays usually either just bounce off or can release themselves. Same for the red-bellied woodpecker. She tried very hard to get to the feeders and ended up caught in the net three times, releasing herself each time before the crew could get to her. (And yes, she was able to pig out at the feeder in peace after the nets were down, so her efforts did not go unrewarded. )

And, of course, more grosbeaks in the nets:
