Used to see one (1) male in So. NM.

Used to see 2 yrs ago in the Sacramento Mountains at the feeders in our yard, one male rose-breasted grosbeak. He was always with the black headed grosbeaks. We sometimes had evening grosbeaks but they preferred higher up the mountain in Cloudcroft.


Now we live in coastal Central Florida again and I have not seen a grosbeak of any kind despite having feeders out full of sunflower seeds. Sure hope something in that nature comes along. Lots of cardinals though.
