We've seen Rose-breasted Grosbeaks on the feeders for 4-5 days now. We've
counted 4 males and 1 female so far. FOTY catbirds showed up yesterday--
two of them. My chick-a-dee family nesting in my "blue-bird" box have 4
new little additions. Mama chick-a-dee has been trying to keep them nice
and warm with these colder temps for the last couple of days. The
American Goldfinch numbers are increasing along with the number of House
Finches, which means that the food level in the feeders are starting to go
down more rapidly. I've only seen a hummingbird once about a week ago.
Does anyone have them regularly at their feeders already this year. It
would be sad if I didn't have hummers hanging around. Saw my first white-
throated sparrow a few days ago.
Other birds who frequent my yard...
red-shouldered hawk (beautiful, but probably not the best "advertisement"
around your bird feeders)
