It must be a good year all over for Rose-breasted Grosbeaks. I didn't
find a nest,
but I believe they nested in the woods that adjoins our property (which
for here) and friends mentioned that they had them this summer as well.
reason, they seem to be nesting more wide-spread and at lower elevations
We know it was a banner year for them in terms of abundance during spring
but has anyone else had them this year (during breeding season) who
have them this time of year?
