Male and Female Rose Breasted Grosbeaks at our feeder

by Karen
(Ellicottville, NY)

We have had what appears to be 2 families of grosbeaks. We have our feeder hanging right by our back door that we enter and exit from. We also sit out there quite often. They have become very used to us and will sit at the feeder and eat our black oil seeds while we are chatting. We have 2 different males and females, that are beautiful, unfortunately we have not seen them in a couple of days-could they be hatching or have they moved north with the warmer weather? We live in Western New York, and we had a couple of very hot days last week, and haven't seen them since. We loved having them and hope they will come back to us!

Missing Grosbeaks
by: Marie

I was wondering the same thing. Last year, we still had the young Grosbeaks in September. This year it seems they left us in early August.

Where are my grosbeaks
by: Judy

I had two male and two female grosbeaks in my yard everyday since they arrived their young are here now and they have all been together. It's been 2 weeks since I have seen any of them except the young.
Does anyone have any idea why my grosbeaks would just not come back. I have all the food they love and they where here several times a day they are gone it's mid July where could they be?
