I once had an invasion of Evening Grosbeaks at a feeder I had outside an apartment (ground level) in Williamsburg VA. And by invasion I mean a flock of about two dozen that stuck around for a couple weeks and went through about 50 pounds of sunflower seeds. They made a considerable enough noise that the neighbors actually complained. That was in the winter of 1976-77. If any show up at feeders, feed them religiously and they may stick around!
