Adult Male Breasted First Sighting in Florida

(Tampa, Florida)

My hubby has five feeders strategically located in our backyard and has enjoyed this hobby for many years. During the migration season he will feed with a fruit and nut blend. As the summer months approach, he typically fills each feeder with primarily sunflower seeds for the abundance of Cardinals that visit each day.

Yesterday was a first for us with a visit from a male rose breasted grosbeak. I was so excited and quickly researched and was able to identify this beautiful bird. He's been at all of our feeders today, even enjoying the suet we have for the woodpeckers. He seems to get along with other birds sharing the same feeders simultaneously.

So exciting for us!

I always get excited when I see these beautiful birds at my feeders. I have 3 pair every year and they stay most of the summer. I feed black oil sunflower seed, suet, and fruit and nut logs all year. All my birds love the variety.
