Rose Breasted Grosbeaks in Southen Il. back yard.

by Barbara Dangbar

We live in a small quaint village named Cobden Il. My husband and I have had bird feeders out year round for years and I cannot express enough how much we have enjoyed our feathered friends.

Especially the Rose Breasted Grosbeaks. Today is Easter Sunday and what a pleasant surprise seeing our first two come to the feeders today. We feed our birds. Blackoil sunflower seeds. Regular sunflower seeds and safflower. We are sad when the Grosbeaks leave us for the summer but look forward to their return next spring.

Just had 4 Rose breasted Grosbeaks in my backyard feeders. The first time I've ever had them.

Hi,
I enjoyed your post on the Rose Beaks. I too LOVE them they arrived at my feeders on EASTER too and what a Easter present. I have seen 2 males today and that is the FIRST time i have seen 2 males in my yard ever. I watched them fuss at each other at the feeders but they joined together after they left the feeder in the trees. What a pleasant surprise for Easter they are both so beautiful. I capture the 3 times on Easter on my birdcam and got them on a real good video.
