Feeding birds in the spring can be one of the most productive times.  Many colorful species, including  orioles, tanagers, and buntings will begin to move north from their winter homes.  As they move north across the country many of these birds will stop at feeders along the way,

One such bird is the Rose-breasted Grosbeak.  Each spring we receive numerous photographs of the male Rose-breasted Grosbeak that have stopped at a feeder as they pass through on their journey north.

You can improve your chances of attracting birds as they move north by offering water - especially with a small waterfall rock which can add sound to help attract the birds.  Also expand food offerings - try suet, grape jelly and softened raisins along with sunflower.
