Bartow County Ga - Rose-breasted Grosbeaks 4-19-2013

I created a Sanctuary area in my backyard filled with

shrubs,flowers,herbs,nesting boxes and water features as well as a variety of feeding stations... I have ground feeder, platform form feeder with hopper style feeder over it on a pole as well as suet cages, and cages for blue bird suet balls and dried worms, Nyger thistle feeders and two squirrel proof cage hopper feeders. I feed black oil sunflower, also a mix of nuts,seeds and fruit as well and millet,corn,gray sunflower mix and of course fresh fruit scraps form my kitchen as well.

I have 3 birdbaths as well as a water garden pond with plants and fish.

For the past 6 years I have seen Rose-breasted Grosbeaks stopping over during migrating, both Spring and Fall.. the joy of Fall? they have the juveniles with them!!!

Then last year I saw none :-(

But this year??? I have in a matter of one week seen two mature males and one female hanging out with me!! They are so beautiful.
