I'm not sure where you live, Pete, but if you are close to us (about 4 miles below Summit), you may have gotten a few of our birds. We have had one or two family groups feeding here for several weeks, but today they were scared off when a Sharp-shinned Hawk flew down and landed on top of the feeder! The Grosbeaks disappeared for quite a while, but are now back. Are yours there now?
