For what it's worth, I had a male and female today - at least detected - at my home at Cotile Lake in NW Rapides Parish. A friend who lives in southern Grant Parish basically east of here had 5+ at her feeders today and has had as many for the past several days.

Thanks for the report. I usually see a smattering of Rose-breasted
Grosbeaks through late April and the first week of May. I counted a dozen
at one time this morning. I have been out since about noon and just
counted 5 on the feeders. I also observed a White-winged Dove yesterday
and today as well as a Painted Bunting yesterday and an Indigo Bunting or
two both days.

Mississippi Kites arrived here over the weekend. This is a late first
arrival for me, but . . .

Ruby-throated Hummingbirds were late arriving, but now I am seeing as many
as 3 daily.
