I had similar experience at my feeders in Woodbridge. Lots of view of the grosbeaks. My resident catbird and several chipping sparrows. Have not seen my yellow rumps yet but any day now

I had a surprisingly big day at the feeders in my suburban Falls Church yard today. The female Rose-breasted grosbeak made numerous appearances throughout the day. I had good views and actually got a couple of nice photographs of it flapping its wings so that I could see the yellow underwing plumage.
While I often have one or two Chipping sparrows, I had no less than nine at one time pecking around on the patio today. The Chippies were here all day.
And surprisingly, for the first time in 25 years, I had a Yellow- rumped warbler at the feeders. It came numerous times to eat the suet and also seem to be pecking around at the platform feeder where I had put out some mix for the sparrows. Interesting!
And I now have three of my usual four or more summer resident Catbirds here.
Not too bad for a city yard.
