Rose Breasted Grosbeaks

We haven't seen Rose Breasted Grosbeaks for over a year. Most of our regular bird species have been "missing" all winter, due to a natural food shortage - lack of seed cones in the forest. Seeing these particularly beautiful birds back was a joy. There are just two males right now, but they've been here for a week, so I imagine the females are on the way. They also have a beautiful song, usually in the evening.
