Here on upper Bruce Hill Road in Danby we have three males and at least one female Rose-Breasted Grosbeak. We usually have them in the summer. We had a male Indigo Bunting stop at the feeders once this year, and that seems to be an annual occurrence. We see it just the once. We have two or three male Baltimore Orioles and, we think, one female. It's lighter than a male but darker than a female. The Orioles won't use the Oriole feeder; they use the Hummingbird feeder and work on fresh oranges. We've only seen one pair of Hummingbirds so far this year. Some years we have so many we have four feeders for them. Watching the various birds and other wild animals certainly keeps us entertained!
