Six males at once

by Kristie
(Golconda, IL)

In past years we have seen a male Grosbeak for a short time at our seed feeder. They would eat for a few minutes and then leave. This year starting around April 30, we saw males most of the day eating black oil sunflower seeds. Today (May 2) we saw six males and several females all at the same time eating from two feeders. One of the females was attacking males (that I assume were not her mate). Since we appear to live right at the border of their breeding range (Golconda, IL) I am hoping we have a pair that stays to nest. Very Excited
