I always look forward to the spring and fall when the Rose-breasted Grosbeak come through. They only stay for a couple of days so I try to enjoy them during their brief visit. Late yesterday afternoon both the male and female arrived at just about dark. They didn't stay too long as a drizzle was beginning.
This morning my Mom dropped by and I had just finished telling her about them and saying I hoped they would come back today. She said "Is that the bird you are talking about?". It had flown in as we were standing and talking.
He is such a beautiful bird. He has been back to the safflower feeder many times today. I have not see the female today but keeping my fingers crossed.
