Just out side of Chicago IL, I have the Rose breasted Gossbeak for the first time this year. Time to look out for the indigo bunting!

we have had a red breasted grossbeak at our feeders now for over a month. Also looks like 3 other grossbeaks as I look through the binoculars - they all feed at the same time with one sitting on top of the feeder - kind of looks like the lookout - beautiful to watch - I think the other 3 are the females with more white under the belly and not as pretty but the same shape beak - maybe it is a family. The creek runs in the back of the property and I have feed heavy for the last couple of years here and have started seeing the most beautiful birds and colors this year - I also put out lots of black sunflower seed and suets and cracked corn and another feed mix

OH MY GOODNESS !!! TWO male rosebreasted birds today at our feeder! Along with the yellow finches and downies, and later a female grossbeak. Just wish my camera would take better pics of them.

We have had a male and female visiting our feeder regularly for about a month now. We had not seen these birds in our yard for the 17 years we have lived in New Hampshire. Today it was feeding alongside a Cardinal - quite a sight!

I was SOOOOOOOOOO excited !!! I have NEVER seen a rose breasted grossbeak before. I heard a beautiful sound outside my kitchen window. And there he was in all his glory enjoying blackoil seeds!! I just moved to Newfield in December and have been enjoying the outdoor birds and creatures immensely. Hopefully he will return again !!

We had two Red Breasted Grossbeaks at our Feeder in Tulsa Oklahoma yesterday. We had never seen one here previously.

We live in western Wisconsin and they have been here for about 2 weeks. I have one that has an orange breast instead of a rose colored one. Does anyone know if this is another species - I cannot find it in my bird book. Right now they are eating the sunflower chips. I put out some golden raisins to see if they will go for them,

Three males and one female arrived at our feeder yesterday. The past 2 years we had one male and one female. They love the sunflower seeds.

I just spotted this bird in my backyard, he stayed for the entire day. Visited in one of our trees, ate at the finch feeder for some time and then hung out by our water fountain. When I looked for him the next day he was gone.

I had a family of 3 male and 4 female red breasted grossbeaks in my bird lot in Soddy Daisy, TN for about 2 weeks when the weather was cool in May. I have not seen them since.

This guy has been serenading me for the last week. I live in northern Vermont. He doesn't seem to mind my chain saw. I was finishing cutting prior to the trees leafing out, so as to not disturb their nesting

Have a male and female grossbeak show up today to feed here in NH. I was interested in these as I hae never seen the rose breasted only the yellow but also they have a wild canary keeping them company at the feeder.
