Rose Breasted Grosbeaks short visit

(Rutledge, Georgia USA)

Every year around April 21st I get a visit from the Rose Breasted Grosbeaks that are migrating through! I live in Rutledge Georgia out in the country and have a wide open back yard with lots of trees around . I have been feeding birds for more than twenty five years. The males come first in groups of threes or as much as fifteen! I feed black oil sunflower seeds. I have swinging platform feeders and I have perching feeders. They will choose either. They appear to be shy of other birds, they eat from feeders that are away from other feeders. I have two groups of feeders. I have them hanging from a tree and I have them hanging from an old swing set. They will eat were it is less populated. The males will be here for a couple of weeks before the females arrive. Time is all too short for these beauties while passing by, but I count myself very blessed to see these breath taking birds!
