Have You Seen This Bird on Seabrook Island?

Although most people’s wings have been clipped, our feathered friends can still be seen migrating on their journey north to breeding grounds! One of these beautiful birds is rarely seen on Seabrook Island only during the spring migration – the Rose-breasted Grosbeak. Several of our SIB members have reported seeing either the male or female grosbeak.

We had both male and female Rose-breasted Grosbeak at our feeder today. They Loved the cylinder suet food.  I imagine going after the cranberries. The Red-winged Blackbirds kept chasing them away. I did get pictures of both of them.

  1. Thanks, Patricia for update and photos! We’ve had 10 Rose-breasted Grosbeaks at our feeders in Atlanta for the past two weeks. Sometimes all 10 at once, and they wait for Aija to put the feeders out in the morning. They’re beautiful birds and entertain us everyday! Hope you all are well!
