It was just about this time last year when we had a female Rose-breasted Grosbeak hang out in our yard for a few days. We named her “Rosie.” We had never seen one here before. I was commenting about this to Phil the other day when, not even 10 minutes later, a male Rose-Breasted Grosbeak flew up to the jelly feeder. It was amazing!
He’s been hanging about for a few days now and loves the grape jelly and the bird bath. We ‘re hoping that he is making a nest nearby. We have yet to see Rosie… maybe she’s sitting on her nest? We hope!
Gorgeous bird, don’t you think? Have you ever seen one?
