Rose-breasted Grosbeak, Pheucticus ludovicianus: Horse Cove, near Gurley, Alabama
Back in the blind today shooting feeder birds. Yesterday I had a couple of dozen Rose-breased Grosbeaks on my feeders at a time. Today things were much different with less than a dozen at a time. Looks like we are near the end of the grosbeak migration here in North Alabama. I would be interested in hearing from others here in North Alabama on the numbers you are seeing. I'm heading north myself, hoping to see these beauties at Magee Marsh.
