Each spring I eagerly anticipate the arrival of a Rose-breasted Grosbeak!
Yesterday I caught a glimpse of my anticipation among the newly opened foliage of our bird feeder area, known to us as Bird Alley.
Its breast color is an unmistakeable eye-catching stand out!!
I didn't have to wait long until it found a feeder. Unfortunately it did not contain any black oiled sunflower seeds which seams to be a food favourite of its.
However the finch food in this feeder seemed to satisfy its taste!
This morning I have used lots of sunflower seeds in our feeders to welcome the return of this bird today when and if it reappears!
