Rose Breasted Grossbeaks in Vernon Hills IL May 7th 2011.

We spotted yesterday and again today, 3 Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks in our backyard, eating from our bird feeders, May 6th and 7th in Vernon Hills IL. I've been leaving out bread crumbs, sunflower seeds, and Country Pride Wild Bird food. The wild bird food from Menards is something new we put out this week.

First time we've ever seen Grosbeaks and we've been here over 10 years.

Rose-breasted Grosbeak is a good father
by: Anonymous

Hi,
I have never seen a female rose-breasted grosbeak in my yard until this Mothers Day.I saw 3 at my front window feeders.So I assume the Male Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks are being a good father and allowing today. They are doing the Fatherly thing and allowing the female some freedom. I saw mr RBGB take his wife out to lunch. I thought that was fitting them both there together and enjoying a nice meal together.

From all these new sightings I'm beginning to think the Rose-breasted grosbeak population is growing!
