Rose Breasted Grosbeaks are here!

Yeah.....! I saw them & knew that they were here the past few days,but only was able to get their pictures today.They stop here twice a year,usually May & Sept. when they are migrating to breeding areas in the spring to the north & to the south for the winter.They feed on sunflower seeds & various tree seeds such as seeds from the box elder trees,pines,& they like all kinds of fruit & insects.
This will be my submission for world bird Wed.Go to the springman`s blog & show us your backyard bird this week.Now let`s see if I get the link right this week...http://pineriverreview.blogspot.com/

I had a Rose breasted grosbeak in the yard this week myself. I think your right Phyllis, they are on the move. And you got the pictures to boot! Nice catches!

Like you I only see them during migration. Sweet shots!

We have them all nesting season and get to see the young ones at the feeders. I love the brown 'suits' the girls wear. They also have a very sweet little plaintive call- a little peeping, besides the telltale chip they do. Great photos, as always!
Love, Debra

What great photos!! We had them earlier in the summer and I've not seen them since--I guess I know where they went! :-)
