Yard Critter of the Week - Rose-breasted Grosbeak

Rose-breasted Grosbeak.

Like the Pine Warbler, this bird shows up like clockwork each year. Since we've moved here it has arrived on April 30 2015; May 4, 2016; April 27, 2017; and April 29 this year. All within a week's time each year.

It seems to prefer the 'big house' feeder, returning throughout the day to chow down on the sunflower seeds.

Maybe it likes this feeder because of a of drama at the platform feeder?

Seems the Red-bellied Woodpecker was not interested in sharing. Good thing we have multiple feeders.
