1st time at the feeder

by Carl
(Lake Holiday, LaSalle Co., IL)

i built plain wood box frame with wire screen stretched across it and placed it on our deck. it's filled safflower seeds for the various birds and squirrels. today, i spotted a beautiful bird i couldn't identify. looking through your site i discovered it to be a rose breasted grosbeak. i've never seen this species before and i hope it stays in the neighborhood as it is a nice addition to the bluejays, gold finches, woodpeckers and chickadees.

The Grosbeaks are on their migratory path north, so do enjoy while they are in your neighbourhood.

    Can you help me identify a bird I saw last week that I've not seen before? It was eating berries in a dogwood tree in North Central Washington state.
