MY Red Breasted Grosbeak

by Bettie Watts
(Mississippi)


We had the Red Breasted at our feeders a couple of years ago,but they didn't show up last year,although the Blue Grosbeaks came back in full force.

We have seen 4 males,and no females thus far. I feed them sunflower seeds and cracked corn,but they mostly eat the sunflower seeds. I put grapefruit out for them,but hey didn't eat any of it.

I haven't been able to get a really nice photo,but I think this one is pretty neat.
