Rose-Breasted Grosbeak

Rose-breasted Grosbeaks are not common here, so the visitors I've had for the last 3 or 4 days probably came by to 'fatten up'.  Two of them stayed on the feeders about all day yesterday.   They ate all the food in the full feeder, one that we usually refill only about once a week.

 I've watched the feeders since I got up this morning, and they haven't appeared.  I fear they have moved north.

So glad they stopped by.  It is so worth the amount we spend on bird seed to see beauties like these.
 Have a good journey, and be sure to stop back in the fall!
