Rose Breasted Grosbeak

(Windsor, Ontario, Canada)
I first saw the Rose Breasted Grosbeak feeding at my feeder about 2 years ago, and at the time I had no idea what kind of bird it was.
This year I started using sunflower seeds instead of the mixed seed, and on May 6th of this year I counted 11 male Rose Breasted Grosbeaks and 2 female Rose Breasted Grosbeaks in my yard all at once.
It's May 8th and every day my yard is filled with these birds.
I have video on YouTube if anyone cares to watch some video of these birds. My user name is ve3tmg - just search it and my videos will come up.
