Michigan's Thumb Region

by Patricia
(Brown City, Michigan)

We've had rose breasted grosbeaks eating black sunflower seeds at our backyard feeders here in Michigan every winter for years, then in the spring they would disappear.

However, for the last 2 years, we have also been seeing them during the summer in the yard and at our oriole jelly feeders!

We planted lots of white pine about 20 years ago, and suspect that the added cover, now that they've grown, as well as wild and domestic grapevines growing nearby attract them.

They are a welcome addition to the great variety of wildlife we enjoy here at our Michigan farm.
