Heading South for the Winter

Heading South for the Winter.
 
Without a doubt the bird with the most voracious appetite is the Rose-breasted Grosbeak. I can always tell when they are here in spring as well as fall as to the amount of food that I have to replace in the feeder. It almost doubles when they are passing through. I go from a large plastic cup, I think it is a Burger King cup, to a Maxwell House plastic can full each day. I would estimate they are consuming about 2 to 3 pounds of Black Oil Sunflower seed each day! It is great to look out though and see 10-15 of these beautiful visitors on and around the feeder area. I know they will be leaving soon, and it will be about 5 or 6 months until I see them again, but it is great while it lasts.
