At the Feeders and in the Trees - Week 27

I have been particularly interested in the Rose-breasted Grosbeaks this week.

They seem to spend the most time at the feeders with safflower seeds. 

The female Rose-breasted Grosbeak is visiting daily too. She has an obvious white eyebrow.

She is a heavily streaked brown and white bird. 

I was happy to get a pic of both of them at the feeder. 

I did snap a couple of pics of the male starting to take flight.

It's great seeing the hummingbirds each day at the feeders and in the trees. 

The Goldfinches are eating the nyjer food at the feeders.

  1. Great photos of beautiful birds!

  2. Wonderful visitors! Great photos.

  3. They are the most beautiful bird! I really wish I could see one in person.

  4. Your Rose Breasted Grosbeaks are so beautiful. Our grosbeaks out here in California are orange and black, not nearly as pretty (to me) as the rose ones.

  5. strange that the female grosbeak are so different from the male. Most timed they have teh same pattern but different colors :)

  6. OK - I am going to have to try the safflower seeds - I would LOVE to see rose-breasted grosbeaks at my feeders! Right now I am getting mainly red-winged blackbirds!!

  7. A nice selection of birds. Love the Grosbeaks. I enjoy watching the hummingbirds, too.

  8. Hello, the Grosbeaks are one of my favorite migrating birds. They are beautiful. Awesome photos. I am sorry to be so late commenting. I just got home from our road trip and I am now trying to catch up on my commenting. Thanks so much for linking up your post. Have a happy day and weekend ahead.

  9. Such brightly colored birds! Love these images.

  10. Hey sweetie! Oh my goodness, you take the BEST shots of birds - I have surely missed being in blogdom and seeing such beauty. Thanks so much for sharing! I haven't even gotten the hummingbird feeders out yet - yikes - haven't set myself up as a feeding source, not good.

    WELL, I do hope they come back and that I am not too late!

    Big hugs. ♥

  11. One year I had a nesting pair and they brought the little one to the was wonderful..Michelle
