Rose-breasted Grosbeaks returned in early May and have been very numerous and regular at our feeders. Many WBU customers are reporting rose-breasteds at their feeders too and a successful nesting season. They are easy to attract and are a beautiful addition to the yard.
Here's a photo gallery of the grosbeaks in my yard.

We've heard more reports of grosbeaks then in previous years. Have Rose-breasted Grosbeaks been more numerous this year in your yard?
