I would like to report Evening Grosbeak sightings at our bird feeder. We first saw just one about a week ago but today, December 3, there must have been at least 8-10 coming. They started coming at about 11:00 am and kept coming back about every half hour or so. We have lived at 765 Centennial Park Road in Kirkfield for about 9 years but had never seen one before. They are so beautiful! We have a 76 acre property composed of mostly pine and cedar.
