Rose Breasted Grosbeaks in Chickamauga, GA

(Chickamauga, GA)

The first rose breasted grosbeaks arrived at our backyard feeders at the end of April about four years ago.


I thought that someone's pet bird had escaped. I called the Audubon Society and they identified the grosbeak. They only stayed for a few days then moved on. We mark our calendar to watch for the grosbeaks at the end of April each year.

We missed seeing the grosbeaks this April but three pairs showed up at our feeders a couple of weeks ago and are still here. We are hoping that they will spend the winter with us. The males are so beautiful. We put black oil sunflower seeds in all of the feeders and have many different species of birds feeding.

Rose Breasted Grosbeaks in winter NEW
by: Anonymous

I look forward each spring to the arrival of our rose-breasted grosbeaks and miss them when they dodge our hot summers in favor of more northern climates. But today, January 12, I was looking out at my feeder in the front shrubs and spotted a rose-breasted grosbeak pecking among the pine straw for loose seeds...I was amazed! I checked carefully to be sure because I had not heard they wintered in Georgia...we are south of Atlanta. Happy day!
