male rose-breasted grosbeaks in Florida

by Karen Lewis
(Trenton, Florida,USA)

This morning 3 male rosebreasted grosbeaks are visiting our feeder ---- a hanging plate that we put chicken scratch on. About 3 feet away is our regular feeder that we stock with sunflower seeds, but the grosbeaks prefer the corn!

We have been feeding and watching birds in north central Florida for about 10 years now and this is the first time we have seen these beautiful birds which must be in migration.

As per the post just before yours, it seems the grosbeaks have arrived in Florida! Amazingly, the previous post has them nesting in their yard.
