The Grosbeaks in Oxford, MS.

by Regina & Joe Symons
(Oxford, MS USA)

We are enchanted with our grosbeaks which arrived around 2 weeks ago. This is the first time they have taken over the feeders and we are so happy! In years past, they have stayed in the back yard and were very hesitant about the feeders. This is the first time we have had so many, around 7 males and 7 females, coming at one time to the feeders. We have suet cakes with sunflower seeds, sunflower seeds,etc. We today added an oriole feeder after reading in this column that they like those. We haven't noticed any nests but remain hopeful. Is there a chance they are nesting here? Would love to hear from others in Mississippi if they have them.
