Red breasted Grosbeak in our yard in Bethel Ohio

We always put out Black Oil sunflower seeds in our feeders year round.

This winter I left my empty flower pots hanging on hooks,
We started sprinkling the seed in those as well.
to our delight they attracted many ground feeders .
On 4/ 27/17 I spotted my first Rose Breasted Grosbeak
Sitting in one of the planters eating seed.
We have now seen up to 5 at a time together feeding on the ground and in the hanging planters .
We have an enclosed viewing area on the deck close to the feeders where we can sit privately an watch them up close. The challenge now is to see who can capture the best photos !
