Grosbeak 005Two Rose-Breasted Grosbeak males stopped by our feeder today. Notice the large triangular shaped red breast and thick, pale beak. Their song is similar to that of the Robin, but a bit more polished as if the Robin had taken voice lessons. Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks are woodland birds which makes perfect sense since we live at the woodland’s edge.

Grosbeak 006I have never seen one at our feeders in the past, but I read that they like fruit, insects and sunflower seeds.  I am wondering if the current rain storms have forced them to get creative in their food-finding mission. I am glad we have provided them an easy option in light of our extreme weather.

Have you seen any unusual visitors at your feeders lately?
