Rose breasted grosbeak
by: Anonymous

For the past two weeks a single male rose breasted grosbeak has been feeding at my feeder. I live in Minnesota and it is November. Any thoughts as to why he hasn't migrated? Do you think he can survive? Appreciate any perspectives or ideas. Thanks.

Rose Breasted Gross Beaks
by: Joanne

I can certainly share your joy to see these beautiful birds. The song is equally joyous. My husband and I live in Red Deer, Alberta, Canada, and wait excitedly ever year for two returning pairs. They have visited our feeder for the last two years, so we hope this year is no different. As it is quite a bit colder here in Canada, they return a bit later, but are always a welcome sight. We feed them black oil sunflower seed and a mix on our platform feeder. Enjoy your gross beaks, and listen for their beautiful song!
