First Rose-breasted Grosbeak..

(Beattyville, Ky Lee)

Hi... We live in Southeastern Kentucky, and our property is a rural area with about 3 acres of mowed yard, setting in about 40 acres of woods, surrounded by hundreds of acres of woods, near Brooks, & Ponds..

We have kept several Bird Feeders well supplied for over 40 years... The last 4 or 5 days, I noticed an unusual Bird Call, Song, I had never heard.. Occasionaly a pair of Scarlet Tangers spend the season with us, so at first I thought it might have been them.. This afternoon , 4-24-18, while looking out the French Doors of our Bedroom, I noticed an unusual Black & White Bird eating from a Feeder on the Back Deck... After watching for about a minute, the Bird changed position, showing it’s Front side, Revealing the White Breast , & Ruby Throat... After searching online, & listening to calls online, I knew what I had been hearing the last few days, & was observing at that time, was indeed a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, a Beautiful Bird...

Our Property appears to be on the borderline of the nesting range for the
Rose-breasted Grosbeak, but hopefully, he will find a mate, if not already done so, raise his young here this season...

Thank You
Beattyville, Kentucky

A Female Rose Breasted Grosbeak Seen NEW
by: Doccoldiron

Today, I saw a Female Rose Breasted Grosbeak visiting the same feeder as the Male was yesterday, & he was nearby, as she ate there... I have seen no other birds of this type, on our property... Maybe they are going to nest here... I hope to provide Pictures soon...
