Subject: Evening Grosbeaks! - Clearfield County
I was lucky to happen to look out my sliding glass doors this morning to see
4 Evening Grosbeaks! My mouth dropped open! So many people have been reporting them in PA that I was wondering if I would ever get any! There was
1 male with his harem of 3 females. I did not notice any bands. They were only here from 9:00 to 9:05 and had a sunflower chip snack before moving on.
This is a new yard bird for this location. I have lived here in the "country" for almost 27 years. I had tons of Evening Grosbeaks in the 80s when I lived in the town of DuBois.
One year there was a big flock of them in DuBois in the 80s that stayed at my house into May. They ate so many sunflower seeds that I was kind of anxious for them to leave. Little did I know that it would sadly be decades until I would see them again! :-(
