First Encounter

It is May 09, 2012. Today was the first time I have seen a Rose Breasted Grosbeak. I have bird feeders and only put black sunflower seeds in it. Usually I have Finches, purple and yellow, chickadees, and yellow Grosbecks. These are the majority of birds. Sometimes I will notice a different kind but they do not linger to long.

Sometimes I have a Blue Jay and one of those large large woodpeckers with the lovely Red Head.
Which I also saw this morning.

My Hummingbirds come to the hummingbird feeder most of the summer.

Then of course I have this squirrel that loves the sunflower seeds also. The birds and this squirrel get along just fine.

I was spell bound by the Rose Breasted Grosbeak. He was just beautiful. Wish I could have taken a picture but I was to far away.
Hope I see more in the following months.

That is great that you take such an interest in these birds.
I think they are rare to see and I myself have not seen one.
I hope you will continue to see them again in the future.
