Good Luck This Year With R-B Grosbeaks

by D. Hopkins
(Pinckney, MI)

We live in Pinckney, MI, which is about 15 miles NW of Ann Arbor. For the past several years we've always had one nesting pair of RBGs in our yard, but last year none. :-( This year I'm happy to report we have at least two nesting pairs, having seen the males and females together at our feeders. We hang mostly black sunflower seeds in large feeders, suet, safflower seeds, and thistle for the finches; and of course oranges/grape jelly & nectar feeders for the orioles and hummingbirds. But to have two nesting pairs this year is great! I may try adding some kind of feeder with dried fruit to see how that does with the RBGs.
