Many of the male and female Rose Breasted Grosbeaks were visiting my feeders for a couple of weeks late April and early May 2017.  Have not seen any in a few days.  Have never seen them before and curious if they typically do not stop by this area or if they will be back and/or etc.?  Just don’t know anything about them.  Had never seen them before.

    Hi Dianne – In my experience off of Blue Rock Rd, the Rose Breasted Grosbeaks seem to stop in our area for a few weeks or so, but continue moving through the area to their summer hang out. They typically don’t stay, unfortunately. This year, we had a record of 8 males at the feeder/suet at the same time. The females sort of hang out a bit away until the guys get their fill, then the females take a turn. They are wonderful aren’t they?

    We had a flurry of grosbeaks as well-100lbs sunflower seed in one week! Most are gone but we still have a couple left-one male and female at least. Kind of glad our birdseed bill has dropped!!! $$$
