rose-breasted grosbeaks, first sighting ever!

I looked out my sunroom window onto the deck where my feeders are...there he was! the most lovely bird I'd ever seen. I didn't know what he was at first...had to go on the birds of Tennessee website and look. I saw him a lot that day then once when I looked out there were two of them!! I couldn't believe it. I have researched and still don't know why there were the two males. If there was a female I didn't get the privilege to see her. They were around for a couple of days, but I haven't seen them today. I hope they come again. They feasted on black oil sunflower seeds and water. There were also some sunflower chips in the feeders. My feeders are just simple flower pot dishes and one that I hang from a nail. I would love to know if anyone out there has had these lovelies and some of their habits. I am a huge fan of birds...and now this one for sure. I live in Chattanooga, TN and watch birds as much as I get opportunity. I have hummers this time of year that I love. doves, gold finch, yellow-rumped warblers, downy woodpeckers, red-headed woodpeckers, thrushes, tohee, Eastern bluebirds, robins, cardinals, chickadees, red house finches, Carolina wrens, blue jays all come to my yard and feast on the seeds. and of course, the pesky squirrels comes as well. Happy birding to all.
